Transfusion is a cinema verite documentary that traces taco trucks across the city of Columbus, Ohio, uncovering the complex and contentious circumstances encompassing Mexican cuisine in the United States. Transfusion is composed of five short films that focus on various social issues surrounding taco trucks. -- The sum of the parts is greater than the whole -- While the west side of the City (the Greater Hilltop Area) struggle to come to terms with how to handle the emergence of taco trucks, a black neighborhood on the East side (the King-Lincoln district) has invited a taco truck into one of the most impoverished areas of Columbus to help revitalize the community. For the City of Columbus the trucks are more than just about Mexican food, they are about immigration, race, community acceptance, and the exchange of life in the inner city. Written by RDL
