For the past four years, the message is clear—build a wall.

In the narrative fictional film, The Wall of Mexico, a Hispanic family builds a wall around their family compound, because outside trespassers believe their well water belongs to everyone.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Wall of Mexico:

Don, a young handyman, is hired by the Aristas, a wealthy Mexican-American family with two outrageously decadent daughters. The source of the Aristas’ wealth is a mystery to Don. Living in nearby Winfield, he soon learns tensions are high between the Aristas and the poor white townspeople, and that this has something to do with the Aristas’ well, which Don is asked to guard at night. People are superstitious about the well. Don learns the Aristas are selling wellwater as alarming prices. Don becomes infatuated with the younger daughter, Tania. As the water level drops, possibly from theft, the situation comes to a boil, and the Aristas decide to build a massive wall.

The movie stars Jackson Rathbone (Twilight), Alex Meneses (Telenovela), Carmela Zumbado (Bloodline), Marisol Sacramento (Blue Bloods), Xander Berkeley (The Walking Dead), and Moises Arias (The Kings of Summer). Two Award-winning actors round out the cast with Esai Morales (Ozark), and Mariel Hemingway (Manhatten). Zachary Colter and Magdalena Zyzak directed the movie from Colter’s screenplay.

LRM Online’s Gig Patta spoke with the two young actresses—Carmela Zumbado and Marisol Sacramento—who played the two eccentric spoiled sisters in the movie. We talked about the concept behind the film, the satire, their characters, and fun being at this ranch.

In a prior statement from Zachary Colter, “The Wall of Mexico is an allegory,” he stated. “And so, instead of trying to solve the insoluble, one crafts an allegory, which gives, at least, a sense of having processed something, and which, I hope, can metaphorically take in not just the US-Mexico border debacle, but also the Israel-Palestine wall, the refugee crisis in Europe, the India-Bangladesh wall, and the many invisible walls between cultures and classes.”

The Wall of Mexico is currently available as VOD today.
