Poster Image for Who Is Dayani Cristal?

Deep in the sun-blistered Sonora Desert beneath a cicada tree, Arizona border police discover a decomposing male body. Lifting a tattered t-shirt, they expose a tattoo that reads, “Dayani Cristal.” As the forensic investigation unfolds, Mexican actor and activist Gael Garcia Bernal retraces one man’s incredible journey toward the deadly stretch of desert known as “the corridor of death” while shedding light on the story of migration for thousands.

  • Approx. 95 min.

Screening followed by discussion facilitated by Oscar Chacon, Executive Director of NALACC and Jose Luis Gutierrez, Executive Director of Casa Michoacán.
