AN ANONYMOUS BODY IN THE ARIZONA DESERT SPARKS THE BEGINNING OF A REAL-LIFE HUMAN DRAMA. THE SEARCH FOR IDENTITY LEADS US BACK ACROSS A CONTINENT TO SEEK OUT THE PEOPLE LEFT BEHIND AND THE MEANING OF A MYSTERIOUS TATTOO.
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.”

During the past couple weeks, Ohio University students have pushed through the deep freeze that chilled them to the core. With temperatures as low as negative six degrees paired with a wind chill that brought the temperture to negative 12 at times, students and faculty members were bundled up tight as they pushed through the frigid wind while making their way to class. Here is a first hand look at the deep freeze in Athens.
