About the film: Winner of the Sundance 2013 Cinematography award and nominated in the World Documentary Competition, “Who is Dayani Cristal?”tells the story of a migrant who found himself in the deadly stretch of desert known as “the corridor of death” and shows how one life becomes testimony to the tragic results of the U.S. war on immigration. As the real-life drama unfolds we see this John Doe, denied an identity at his point of death, become a living and breathing human being with an important life story.

The film is acted by Mexican actor and activist Gael García Bernal, and directed by documentary maker Mark Silver.
Light refreshments will be served and the film will be followed by a discussion.
