We’re a group of friends concerned about the mistreatment of immigrants both at the border and here in the Boston area- so we’re hosting a movie night fundraiser to help!!
Join us in watching “Who Is Dayani Cristal?,” followed by an hour of facilitated discussion. The money we raise will go to BIJAN, the Boston Immigration Justice Accompaniment Network.Come at 6:00 to socialize; we press play on the movie at 7:00. See you there!
Movie info: Who Is Dayani Cristal? tells the story of a migrant who found himself in the deadly stretch of desert known as “the corridor of death” and shows how one life becomes testimony to the tragic results of the U.S. war on immigration. As the real-life drama unfolds we see this John Doe, denied an identity at his point of death, become a living and breathing human being with an important life story.Winner of the Sundance 2013 Cinematography award and nominated in the World Documentary Competition, “Who is Dayani Cristal?” has been described by The Hollywood Reporter as “A deeply moving doc [which] finds a new way of making the immigration debate personal. ”https://whoisdayanicristal.com/
