The exhibition features an installation by Hubert Caron-Guay concerning the passage of Mexican migrants over the American border that, in connection with a 1996 film by Lisl Ponger, offers a dismaying vision of a largely unchanged situation while raising numerous questions surrounding the right to observe. In concurrence, a work by Hillside Projects examines the precarious situation of a migratory bird facing extinction… a particularly resonant metaphor.

Hubert Caron-Guay's installation is complentary to his film Destierros presented during the festival.
