Kino Lorber has dated documentary "Who is Dayani Cristal?," winner of the Sundance 2013 World Cinema documentary award, for theatrical release.

The documentary directed by Marc Silver and written by "doc fixer" Mark Monroe ("The Summit," "Chasing Ice," "The Cove") focuses on the human toll of the U.S. immigration crisis. Starring Mexican actor/activist and Canana producer Gael García Bernal ("Y Tu Mamá También," "No") the film will open on April 25th in New York, followed by a release to select cities nationwide. (My interview with Monroe is here.)

García Bernal traces the steps of one of many workers on the Central American migrant trail who have died in the Arizona border desert known as “the corridor of death.” 

Aided by the forensic examiners of the Pima County Morgue in Arizona, the filmmakers look into the mystery surrounding the death of this unidentified man. During the investigation, Bernal embeds himself among migrant travelers trying to cross the border, witnessing first-hand the dangers they face on their way to the U.S.

The film was produced by London-based Pulse Films, Canana Films, Gael García Bernal, Julián Levin and Pablo Cruz, with support from Impact Partners, Candescent Films, the Ford Foundation and The Sundance Institute Documentary Film Fund.
