'Who Is Dayani Cristal' next in Arkansas Times Film Series

Posted By on Fri, Oct 24, 2014 at 9:34 AM


Save the date: The second installment in our new film series collaboration with the Little Rock Film Festival is coming up at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 14 at Ron Robinson Theater. We'll screen "Who Is Dayani Cristal," a new documentary by the actor Gael Garcia Bernal and Marc Silver. The film weaves together two stories that attempt to humanize the immigrant experience, one where officials try to identify a dead man found in the Arizona desert with the words "Dayani Cristal" tattooed on him and no other forms of identification. The other narrative follows Bernal as he portrays as a migrant traveling from Honduras. Reviews have been largely positive with most using the word "poignant." 

We're hosting the screening with El Zócalo, the Central Arkansas Immigrant Resource Center. Thanks to El Zócalo, it'll be free. No advance tickets required. There'll be some sort of discussion following the film. More details soon.
