Who Is Dayani Cristal? Film Poster


Actor Gael García Bernal produces and presents this documentary exploring the issue of illegal immigration from Mexico into the United States of America. The documentary takes as its starting point the discovery of a corpse in the area of Arizona nicknamed the 'corridor of death' due to the perils it holds for those attempting to hop the border. As the staff from the Pima County Morgue attempt to identify the dead man from little more than the tattooed words 'Dayani Cristal', the film follows their efforts in a bid to see what the life of the man may have to tell us about the motivations and fears of those attempting to cross the border and the justness of US immigration policy.
