WHEN HEADLINES CROSS BORDERS AND STRANGERS BECOME NEIGHBORS
"Crisis at the Border!" That's been the news headline for several years as waves of migrants from Central America cross through Mexico, often in caravans, and attempt to enter the United States to request asylum. Often Americans are caught in a political debate over whether we should build a wall to keep them out or grant access to these asylum-seekers fleeing poverty, violence, and corruption.
What happens when a small farming community sets aside its politics and witnesses the humanity of asylum-seekers firsthand? Filmed in Honduras, Texas, and Illinois, ACROSS is the story of a Honduran mother and daughter seeking asylum in the U.S. and the Midwestern evangelicals who were shaken by their presence.
ACROSS was released at film festivals in early 2022 and won its first award at WorldFest-Houston in April 2022. Producers are currently in production on the rest of series that is slated for release in late 2022.
ACROSS is the result of a nearly three-year collaboration between producers, camera crews, and editors with decades of experience working for prestigious television and film companies (Oprah Winfrey, CBS News, NBC News, PBS, Spectrum). The project was born out of an episode of The Maybe God Podcast (rated Top 100 Spirituality Podcasts by Apple) that aired in July 2019.
