It's well worth seeing.
What makes "La Camioneta" so interesting is not so much the story that it tells as it is the way that Kendall has chosen to tell it.
This sense of childlike wonder, and the respect accorded everyone involved in prolonging the bus's usefulness, are all the more impressive given that Kendall concludes with a sobering assessment of widespread civilian violence in Central America.
The film wrings an almost bizarre amount of political, humanistic and spiritual substance out of this limited frame.
An unexpected and fascinating aspect of migration in the Americas, viewed in intimate close-up.
As modest and farsighted as its cast of Guatemalans who make a living resurrecting discarded American school buses.
Kendall makes his documentary memorable by resisting the urge to give crime center stage. Instead he focuses on the lives being quietly and doggedly built, even if at a great risk.
Follow a humble yellow school bus as it is transformed into something joyous and defiant. It's like discovering that your grandma has another life as a secret agent.
"La Camioneta" is a fascinating tale of determined individuals, and witnessing the transformation of the familiar into something new and useful is inspiring.
I's well worth flagging down.
La Camioneta wrings an extraordinary amount of humanity and geopolitical insight from its subject.
While The Counselor focused on the hopeless darkness, Mark Kendall finds the humanity that keeps the lights on while fully aware of what could await them down the road.
'La Camioneta'. An eye-opening look into the violent, high stakes life of a bus driver in Guatemala, which is so jarringly far-flung from what you'd expect. Surprisingly philosophical too!
