Kino Lorber has announced the U.S. theatrical premiere of "Who Is Dayani Cristal?' an award-winning new documentary focused on the human toll of the U.S. immigration crisis.

Starring Gael García Bernal ("Y Tu Mamá También") and directed by Marc Silver, the film opens on April 25 in New York, followed by a release to select cities nationwide.

Winner of the Sundance 2013 World Cinema Cinematography Award and an official selection at the 51st New York Film Festival, "Who Is Dayani Cristal?" adds a critical perspective to the intense immigration reform debate in the United States.

In Silver's piercing documentary that pushes the edges of the non-fiction form, acclaimed Mexican actor and activist Gael García Bernal tells the story of one of the many migrant workers who lost their lives in the stretch of Arizona desert known as “the corridor of death.”

Bernal retraces this man’s steps along the migrant trail in Central America, he and director Silver show how one life can become a powerful testimony to the tragic results of the U.S. war on immigration.

With contributions from the dedicated forensic examiners of the Pima County Morgue in Arizona, the film seeks to answer questions surrounding the death of this yet-unidentified man.

As the investigation unfolds, Bernal embeds himself among migrant travelers on their own mission to cross the border. He witnesses first-hand the dangers these men, women and children face on their way to the United States, also offering new insight into their sacrifices in search for a better life.

Silver and Bernal bring viewers intimately close to the often-invisible lives that have been affected by a broken immigration policy.
