New Film Exposes the Realities of Crossing the U.S.-Mexico Border

Dayani CristalGael García Bernal and Marc Silver’s new documentary film – Who Is Dayani Cristal? – tells the story of migrants who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border through the lens of examining a dead migrant’s body, tattooed with the name “Dayani Cristal.” In the midst of a national debate about how to fix our country’s broken immigration system, this film is particularly relevant in its analysis of the life-threatening dangers that immigrants often face while traveling from their home countries across the border to the U.S. Please contact liza.lieberman@hias.org if you are interested in screening this film in your community – it provides a great tool to facilitate conversations about immigrant rights and immigration reform!
