The New York Immigration Coalition is pleased to announce we are sponsoring two new poignant films on immigration this Friday 4/25 and next Friday 5/2. 

Join us for the screenings and special post-screening discussions!

Who is Dayani Cristal?
5pm on Friday, April 25th 

7:30pm on Friday, May 2nd

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. Click HERE to view the trailer.

Screening Location: Cinema Village, 22 East 12th St, NYC
