Tallgrass Film Festival screening of Sunbelt Express
Sunday, October 19, 3:45 p.m.
Sponsored by the Peace & Social Justice Center

    Synopsis: Allen King Has A Problem. Actually, he has a few. Fired for plagiarizing a student’s work, Allen has hit rock bottom. Almost.  Living in sunny Arizona, he now shuttles immigrants across the Mexican border in the trunk of his beat up Volvo - for cash to pay his ex-wife's expenses.  But it’s only a matter of time before Allen's life catches up with him - and rapidly devolves into chaos as both his pregnant Mexican girlfriend and his teenage daughter land in his car during an illegal run across the border - along with three undocumented immigrants in the trunk.
General admission tickets $10. Click here: Tallgrass Film Association: Sunbelt Express for ticketing and more information
