Frontera immerses you in the world of Maria, a single mother from Venezuela, who has decided to migrate in order to save her children from the crisis. In this experience you will become Maria and live her story. You will have the power of making important decisions that affect the course of her journey, ultimately placing you, quite literally, in the shoes of a migrant.

Frontera was conceptualized to transmit an intimate portrait of what is it like be a migrant, to those who are not directly affected by the Venezuelan crisis but who live in migrant-receiving countries.

Frontera aims to bridge understanding into why migrants leave home, what pulls them into new frontiers and what kind of decisions they have to make to get there. This experience will change the way you see migrants and displaced peoples forever. By erasing the limits between a 2D screen and the user, and providing you with a space to interact with and the agency to make decisions on Maria’s behalf, we believe that a deeper sense of empathy can be gained. This empathy and understanding can be a strong catalyst for action.
