Miami Exclusive Premiere Engagement!


(On the Seventh Day)

Directed by JIM McKAY/2018/1hr, 37mins.

With Fernando Cardona, Gilberto Jimenez, Abel Perez

En el Séptimo Día follows a group of undocumented immigrants living in Sunset Park, Brooklyn over the course of seven days. 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. If he doesn't work, 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.
Shot in the neighborhoods of Sunset Park, Park Slope, and Gowanus, EN EL SÉPTIMO DÍA is a humane, sensitive and humorous window into a world rarely seen. The film’s impact is made quietly, with restraint and respect for the individual experiences, everyday challenges and small triumphs of its characters.

CRITIC’s PICK! "MOVIE MAGIC... The nonprofessional cast members are as compelling as any pros."-Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times

"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

En el Séptimo Día is an intimate character study, but it’s also an excitingly kinetic film."-Amy Taubin, Art Forum
