REACT to FILM Presents: Who is Dayani Cristal?


Mara Woods-Robinson ’16 writes in about an awesome screening happening tomorrow:

“An anonymous body in the Arizona desert sparks the beginning of a real-life human drama. The search for identity leads us back across a continent to seek out the people left behind and the meaning of a mysterious tattoo.”

Like film? Activism? Free food? Then join us on Wednesday night for a screening of Who Is Dayani Cristal?, a 2013 award-winning documentary film about immigration politics. The screening will be followed by a live Google Hangout with director Marc Silver. And there will be snacks!

REACT to FILM is a nonprofit organization with chapters in colleges across the nation. We organize screenings of documentary films about social issues, with the hope of generating discussion around the issues and providing the opportunity for students to become involved.
