Who is Dayani Cristal?  A Film by Gael Garcia Bernal and Marc Silver

Several faith communities in Duluth are sponsoring a screening of the documentary film Who is Dayani Cristal? at the Zinema on Monday, November 3, 7:00 p.m.  The film traces the journey of one immigrant’s journey from Central America to the southern border of the U.S.  There will be a discussion afterward.  This event is free and open to the public.

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.

Winner of the Sundance 2013 Cinematography award and nominated in the World Documentary Competition, “Who is Dayani Cristal?” has been described by The Hollywood Reporter as “A deeply moving doc [which] finds a new way of making the immigration debate personal.”
