College of Public Health Hosts Documentary

August 23

The University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health will host a free screening of the documentary film, “Who is Dayani Cristal?

The screening will take place Thursday, Aug. 23, from 5-6:30 p.m., in Drachman Hall, Room B101, 1295 N. Martin Ave., Tucson.

The body of an unidentified immigrant is found in the Arizona desert. To retrace his path and discover his story, director Marc Silver and Mexican actor and activist Gael Garcia Bernal embed themselves among migrant travelers on their own mission to cross the border, providing rare insight into the human stories that so often are ignored in the immigration debate.

A Q&A panel discussion with community leaders featured in the film will follow the screening.

The event is hosted by LUCHA (Learning, Understanding & Cultivating Health Advocacy), a graduate student organization at the UA Zuckerman College of Public Health.
