EN EL SÉPTIMO DÍA (On the Seventh Day), the new fiction feature from director Jim Mckay, follows a group of undocumented immigrants living in Sunset Park, Brooklyn over the course of seven days. It is a humane, sensitive, and humorous window into a world rarely seen.
“Working as a fast and reliable bicycle delivery guy for a restaurant, as well as the acknowledged mainstay of a soccer team poised to win a championship, Jose comes face to face with the starkest of dilemmas: ‘either we get slaughtered or I get fired.’
As we hang on the film’s plot twists, we also quietly absorb its points about the power of community and the purposeful determination of immigrants to create better lives for their families, not as special pleading but as something powerful and convincing.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
“Confident and captivating… the movie has a bone-deep humanity that transcends technique and reaches right back to Cassavetes.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety
“McKay’s control of tone and rhythm is in high gear, creating a work both thought-provoking and hugely entertaining.” – Sheila O’Malley, RogerEbert.com
“A feel-good crowdpleaser — a rousing sports movie about characters trapped by their surroundings and galvanized by their communal spirit.” – Eric Kohn, IndieWire
Language: Spanish, English and Mixtec, with English and Spanish subtitles
