| A great shorter version of Fronteras Americanas
Although Guillermo Verdecchia's Cruceros/Crossroads does not explore the Latino-Canadian identity and its problems as much as his play Fronteras Americas does, it is still a great introduction to the subject. Verdecchia manages to illustrate the two cultures, their differences such as language, cultural stereotypes and how one can find a home in-between the two. Without needing to use much of a plot Verdecchia shows the struggles that one goes through in order to find a place in between two worlds and how the same geographical location can be both home and a foreign country to someone with an hyphenated identity. By using himself and his Latino stereotype alter ego as the protagonists of this short film Verdecchia manages to make his audience ponder, question and laugh at what they know about Latinos and Canadians as they are shown Verdecchia's search for his identity.
