Reservation required, online (click on the tickets icon).

A poetic and participatory metanarrative 360-degree video that weaves experiences of people who live in Saratoga Springs, NY, are identified as “immigrants” and face a climate of ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) raids and anti-immigrant sentiment.

A 360-degree tapestry of voices and experiences documenting an array of involvements pertaining to immigration in the USA. Co-created by a collective of artists and organizers, who themselves are immigrants, responding to the rise in racial profiling, ICE activity and xenophobia across Saratoga County. The film places the viewer in the center of a segregated state recreating real situations with verse woven through the voice-over.
