Univision will be airing Who is Dayani Cristal? on September 6, 2014 at 6 PM/ 5 PM Central and on Fusion at 8 PM/7 Central on September 7 and 8 (check local listings) nationwide. The Southern Border Communities Coalition is happy to partner with the the social impact team behind the Sundance award-winning film, “Who is Dayani Cristal?”
“Who is Dayani Cristal?” is an intimate examination of the journey of one migrant who perished in the Arizona desert, far from his native Honduras, with no real identification but a name tattooed over his heart. The film was produced by Marc Silver and features Gael García Bernal and weaves together real-life attempts to identify the migrant’s body with Bernal’s retracing of the journey he would have most likely taken through the “corridor del muerte” to reach the U.S. with hopes of improving the lives of his family.
Migrant deaths continue to be a tragic reality for border communities and should weigh on the consciousness of our society.
