"Transfusión is a provocative exploration of the relation of space to social transformation. It presents a strong argument for the need to understand the spatial dimensions of identity and privilege. In Lemon’s cinematography we find the power of documentary to present and, perhaps more importantly, creatively reimagine a sense of place."


-Margaret Frohlich Assistant Professor of Spanish and Portuguese, Dickerson College.

​Synopsis: Transfusion is a documentary film set in Columbus, OH about food, life, immigration, and the exchange of culture in unexpected places. 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 food, they're about immigration, race, community acceptance, and the exchange of life in the inner city.
