(AP) Gael Garcia Bernal has journeyed north to the Sundance Film Festival in Utah to share the tragic story of another traveler.


The Mexican actor is a producer on the immigration documentary Who Is Dayani Cristal? in which Bernal also appears on-screen to dramatize the path that the film's subject took to the U.S.


Bernal and director Marc Silver sought to unravel the mystery of a body found rotting in the Arizona desert in August 2010. The man bore the tattoo Dayani Cristal across its chest.


The film reveals the circumstances that led the man on a 2,000-mile trek that ended in the desert. And it provides a tearful answer for its title when it reveals the identity of Dayani Cristal.


The film premiered as part of Sundance's day-one lineup Thursday.
