Crossings is a sex worker-produced documentary about the effects of criminalization on migrant sex workers in Europe and their resistance. Highlighting common myths around sex work and preconceptions about sex workers, the film reflects on the current trends sex workers and other marginalized groups in Europe face: increasing hostility to migrants and refugees, growing populism, cuts and austerity, and backlash against women’s and LGBTQ rights. Viewers are given a glimpse into how governments approach sex work and migration and how the lives of the five characters are harshly impacted by police control, detention, deportation, and imprisonment.
