Part of Film series Reel Impact
Co-presented by BAM and Amazon Studios
Directed by Jim McKay | 2017

With Fernando Cardona, Gilberto Jimenez, Abel Perez

Acclaimed director Jim McKay’s (Our Song, Girls Town) first feature in over a decade is this timely, compassionate, often humorous look at life in New York as an undocumented Mexican immigrant. José works long hours doing bicycle deliveries for a restaurant in Carroll Gardens and then spends his day off on the soccer fields of Sunset Park. When his team makes it to the championship, he and his teammates are thrilled. But José’s boss throws a wrench into the celebration when he tells him he has to work on Sunday, the day of the finals. Knowing he’ll be fired if he doesn’t show up for work, José is forced to choose between his job and his loyalty to the team. Shot on the streets of Brooklyn, En El Séptimo Día vividly captures the struggles and camaraderie that binds this community together in a universally relevant story of fortitude and dignity.

Francis Madi, manager of advocacy at New York Immigration Coalition, Mel Gonzalez, workers' rights advocate, Equal Justice Works Fellow at Make the Road New York, and Juan Carlos Ruiz, Rev. and cofounder of New Sanctuary Movement, moderated by Grace Aneiza Ali, founder and editorial director of Of Note magazine
