Director Marc Silver

This award-winning documentary tells the story of a migrant who found himself in the deadly stretch of desert along the U.S. – Mexico border.  The film follows a team of dedicated staff from the Pima County Medical Examiner’s Office, as they seek to identify this anonymous man.  As the forensic investigation unfolds, Gabriel García Bernal retraces this man’s steps along the migrant trail in Central America.  Who Is Dayani Cristal? highlights the often untold human stories behind the debates over immigration.
