En El Séptimo Día Trailer

"You're in a very tough situation, José." Cinema Guild has debuted an official trailer for an indie drama film titled En El Séptimo Día, which translates to On the Seventh Day. The latest film by Jim McKay, this indie drama is a compelling look at immigrants in America and the work they do for us. The film follows a group of undocumented Mexican immigrants who work long hours six days a week, and then savor their day of rest on Sundays on the soccer fields of Brooklyn. It has been described in reviews as "an ode to those who fight for that glimmer of hope this country claims," giving us a look at the lives of these immigrants and how hard they work for the chance to have the most basic lives, with their brief freedom to play soccer bringing them the most joy. Fernando Cardona stars as José. This film looks like it might be a good one to watch.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Jim McKay's En El Séptimo Día, direct from YouTube:

En El Séptimo Día Poster

Bicycle delivery guys, construction workers, dishwashers, deli workers, and cotton candy vendors, they work long hours six days a week and then savor their day of rest on Sundays on the soccer fields of Sunset Park. José, a bicycle delivery worker, is the team’s captain – young, talented, hardworking and responsible. When José’s team makes it to the finals, he and his teammates are thrilled. But his boss throws a wrench into the celebration when he tells José he has to work on Sunday, the day of the finals. José tries to reason with his boss or replace himself, but his efforts fail. If he doesn’t work on Sunday, his job and his future will be on the line. But if he doesn’t stand up for himself and his teammates, his dignity will be crushed. En El Séptimo Día (On the Seventh Day) is directed by veteran American filmmaker Jim McKay, director of the films Girls Town, Our Song, and Everyday People previously, as well as lots of TV work. The film first premiered at the BAMcinemaFest and Locarno Film Festival last year. Cinema Guild will release McKay's En El Séptimo Día in select theaters starting on June 8th this summer. Who's interested?

Looking good. Immigrants are pariahs of today's world...

here's how you do that: Enter the Country the LEGAL way. if the first thing you do is break the're going to be treated as such

Lol, see? Present facts (a criminal is someone who does something illegal) and they can't handle it.. I'm sorry you can't reason with facts and come to terms with what "laws" are and why we have them..

ColtNoir on May 29, 2018


“Legal”. “Illegal”. A very black and white reasoning with this particular issue, and yet I think we all need to think more “grey” about this. Yes, “illegal” is in fact “illegal”, nobody can deny that, but, I think we need to both see and understand exactly *why* all these people are coming here from foreign lands in the first place to better repare the damage Trump’s policies have done, overall (yes, I’m being political, here, but, I do beleive this film has brought about tough issues we simply *need* to address). Perhaps instead of treating these people as mere vermin and tearing away families, for example (which should be seen as a truly evil practice, wether or not your views lean more either to the left or right), we should all think of better ways to make it a lot easier for immigrants to come here, “legally”, mind you.

One makes you a criminal. Theres nothing grey about it. Come over the right and legal way..

ColtNoir on Jun 2, 2018


Once again, you’re thinking too black and white, unless you have a legitimate solution, which in that case I’ll be more than willing to listen to...

Mark Brackney on Jun 2, 2018


Once again, there's laws in place and have been for years. There's thousands who have come over the correct way. That is the only legitimate solution. Sorry that you're unable to "listen" to facts.

Hmmm, maybe. But separating children from their parents is evil, and needs to be stopped.

Mark Brackney on Jun 3, 2018


Agreed. if they have children while here, illegally - the children should go back with the parents.
