As part of the Buffalo Humanities Festival, Tanya Shilina-Conte and I screened Who Is Dayani Cristal? starring Gael Garcia Bernal and directed by Marc Silver, on Thursday, September 25. The large and receptive audience engaged in a very spirited discussion of our country’s failed immigration policies and the 2,000 confirmed deaths of migrants in the Sonora Desert since 2000. “Dayani Cristal” was but one whose desiccated body could be identified. The film tells his story.
