10/30 Film screening “Who is Dayani Cristal”

October 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Who is Dayani Cristal?by Marc Silver (2013) tells the story of a migrant who found himself in the deadly stretch of desert known as “the corridor of death” and shows how one life becomes testimony to the tragic results of the U.S. war on immigration. As the real-life drama unfolds we see this John Doe, denied an identity at his point of death, become a living and breathing human being with an important life story.

Introduced by Luis Marentes
Associate Professor Spanish and Portuguese Studies, UMass

This film is part of the UMass Week of Memory and Forgetting
