According to ‘The Hollywood Reporter’, Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal is teaming with filmmaker Marc Silver and U.K. content, talent and production banner Pulse to star and co-produce drama documentary Who is Dayani Cristal?
Bernal’s film follows the quest to identify an anonymous body found in the Arizona desert on the U.S.-Mexican border, with the only clue being a tattoo bearing the legend ‘Dayani Cristal’.
Pulse coralled support from U.K. broadcaster Channel 4’s BRITDOC foundation for the project.
Directed by Silver, the title is produced by Thomas Benski and Lucas Ochoa for Pulse Films, Marc Silver for Silver Lining Films and Gael García Bernal for Canana Films.
The feature documnetary is due to start shooting this month and was birthed from cross-platform online project Resist, which invites members of the public to build a community and upload their own experiences of resistance against oppression.
