Who is Dayani Crystal?

I can't wait till Who is Dayani Crystal? comes out.  Gael Garcia Bernal, mi amor, is such an amazing actor and doing his part to put stories out there that need to be told, and heard by a brouder audience.  He is quite the activist in his own right, as mentioned in the interviews above this movie was inspired by his time creating 4 short films for Amnesty International about the migration of undocumented up to the the United States.  The link to those is here- but be warned that some of the stories are graphic and just unbelievably sad.  Gael also produced one of my favorite movies Sin Nombre, also discussing the complexities of immigration.
