Synopsis
“Veteran actors Esai Morales and Mariel Hemingway join with some newcomers to spin a fantasy about rich Mexicans turning the tables on poor white people.” – is how Hollywood Reporter described a directing cooperation of a Polish-American duet: Magdalena Zyzak & Zachary Cotler. The plot of THE WALL OF MEXICO centers around a Mexican family who decides to build a wall around their property to deter the intrusion of poor white people in the vicinity. The film escapes frames and categories. A well mastered juggling of genres and twists, great visuals with a fantastic character development – it is like nothing you have ever seen.
