Crosscurrent Pictures is a student-run film production company based in Villanova, PA. The filmmakers traveled to Italy for two weeks in October 2015 to explore the issue of migration.

About Limbo: After risking their lives to escape injustices and pursue a better life in Europe, several dozen migrants from West Africa have found themselves trapped in a web of Italian bureaucracy. Now living in a converted hotel in the small town of Monteroduni, they face both a legal system unprepared to accommodate their needs and prejudices from some Italians who surround them as they try to integrate.
