On Wednesday, May 21st, there will be a double feature of two important films: the award-winning WHO IS DAYANI CRISTAL? by Marc Silver and Gael Garcia Bernal, which is a deeply moving documentary that shows how one man’s life and tragic death becomes testimony to the results of U.S. immigration policy and the risks people take for the ones they love, and THE MAYOR, a ten-minute short by Theo Rigby about small-town Republican Mayor Paul Bridges who has a profound friendship with the Mexican family living next door. The screenings will be followed by a post-screening Q&A featuring Filmmakers Marc Silver, Theo Rigby, Mayor Paul Bridges, Ford Foundation President Darren Walker and other special guests.
