La Camioneta - Presented by the Maysles Cinema
Tuesday, October 1st, 7:30pm
La Camioneta
Curated by Christian Chapman

La Camioneta
Mark Kendall, 2012, 72 mins

Every day dozens of decommissioned school buses leave the
United States on a southward migration that carries them to
Guatemala, where they are repaired, repainted, and
resurrected as the brightly-colored camionetas that bring
the vast majority of Guatemalans to work each day. Since
2006, nearly 1,000 camioneta drivers and fare-collectors
have been murdered for either refusing or being unable to
pay the extortion money demanded by local Guatemalan gangs.

La Camioneta follows one such bus on its transformative
journey: a journey between North and South, between life and death, and through an unfolding collection of moments,
people, and places that serve to quietly remind us of the
interconnected worlds in which we live.

Post-screening Q&A with director Mark Kendall

This film will be screened in celebration of National
Hispanic Heritage Month, which recognizes and celebrates the independence days of Costa Rica, Honduras, El Salvador,
Guatemala, Mexico, Belize, Nicaragua and Chile, and the rich cultural contributions these countries have brought to the U.S.
