The critically acclaimed LA CAMIONETA explores Guatemalan culture and the complex impacts of globalization through the transformation of a US school bus into a Guatemalan public bus. 72 mins, Spanish language w/English subtitles. Free admission; discussion to follow. Pizza and handicrafts will be sold from 6:30 pm onward to benefit the Guatemala project of the MTU chapter of Engineers Without Borders.

From "Every day dozens of decommissioned school buses leave the United States on a southward migration that carries them to Guatemala. 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."
