Extending the Link

Extending the Link (ETL) was founded in 2008 by students at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University in central Minnesota. The student-run organization annually produces documentary films focused on under-told social justice issues at home and abroad.

Convivir: A Vehicle for Education

ETL's 13th Documentary, premiering virtually on May 15th, centers around the idea that accessible, well connected transportation is necessary for individuals to access social and educational opportunities. Our film follows the story of individuals from Minnesota and Arequipa, Peru. These dual narratives highlight the universal need for transportation infrastructure, both abroad and in right in our backyard. Given the Link, the need for students to coordinate rides down to the cities and even the grocery store, we know this story has significant parallel to our home at CSB/SJU.
