Quien es Dayani Cristal? (Who is Dayani Cristal?) film screening
Directed by Marc Silver (Mexico, USA, 2014)
LaRose Digital Theatre, Koury Business Center, 6 p.m.
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.” Who is this person? What brought him here? How did he die? And who—or what—is Dayani Cristal? Winner of the Sundance 2013 Cinematography Award and nominated in the World Documentary Competition, Who Is Dayani Cristal? shows how one life becomes testimony to the tragic results of the U.S. war on immigration. In Spanish with English subtitles.
