Bernal hits Sundance to share tragic border story
PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Gael Garcia Bernal has journeyed north to the Sundance Film Festival in Utah to share the tragic story of another traveler.
The Mexican actor is a producer on the immigration documentary "Who Is Dayani Cristal?" in which Bernal also appears on-screen to dramatize the path that the film's subject took to the U.S.
Bernal and director Marc Silver sought to unravel the mystery of a body found rotting in the Arizona desert in August 2010. The man bore the tattoo "Dayani Cristal" across its chest.
The film reveals the circumstances that led the man on a 2,000-mile trek that ended in the desert. And it provides a tearful answer for its title when it reveals the identity of Dayani Cristal.
The film premiered as part of Sundance's day-one lineup Thursday.
