New boundaries emerge every moment: miles of barbed wire, concrete security walls, naval detention centers, biometric passport databases, and checkpoints at schools, airports, and roadsides. We live in delineated zones dictating our possibilities, pasts, and paths. In this program, testimonies on settler-colonialism, identity, and migration take us behind, inside, and beyond borders.

An immersive expedition throughout the geographies and stories composing the Latin American journey to reach and survive in the US. By weaving together oral histories and the landscape, Cruces is structured to highlight the constitutive elements of transit, such as trains and rivers, and the obstacles immigrants face while moving, such as forests, deserts, and border regimes. Recorded in 2019 and early 2020, this multivocal ethnography comprises the distributed yet relational geographies of immigrants' quests and settling.
