Crossing Borders and Risking Everything
By David Johanssen
More than six thousand immigrants have died crossing the southern US border since 1998. Often times no one knows who these people might have been when they were alive, where they came from, what their aspirations were, and why they would leave home, risk riding trains across Mexico and cross the desert of northern Sonora. Join us for a discussion on this compelling topic Tuesday, December 16 at 4pm as Shelter Theater continues its documentary series with Who is Dayani Cristal. The film recounts the journey of an unidentified immigrant whose body was found in the Arizona Desert. In an attempt to retrace his path, director Marc Silver and Gael García Bernal embed themselves among migrant travelers. 40 pesos.
