Just in time for the November elections comes “Desierto,” a unique, modern vision of terror from Jonás Cuarón and Alfonso Cuarón , the acclaimed, award-winning filmmakers that brought us “Gravity.” “Desierto” is a visceral, heart-pounding suspense-thriller packed with tension and suspense from start to finish, starring Gael García Bernal (“The Motorcycle Diaries,” “Y Tu Mamá También,” and “Mozart in the Jungle”) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“Watchmen”).

What begins as a hopeful journey to seek a better life becomes a harrowing and primal fight for survival when a deranged, rifle-toting vigilante chases a group of unarmed men and women through the treacherous U.S.-Mexican border. In the harsh, unforgiving desert terrain, the odds are stacked firmly against them as they continuously discover there’s nowhere to hide from the unrelenting, merciless killer.

Jonas Cuarón, Alfonso’s son, served as a writer, producer and director of the film. He explains “Desierto” discusses important issues and he hopes the audience takes something away from the thriller, which presents a sad and terrifying reality that thousands of hopeful immigrants face in the U.S.-Mexico border these days.

While the film’s official movie trailer doesn’t include Trump’s offensive, a clip was released voiced with part of the GOP candidate’s harsh speech given June of last year when he announced his presidential candidacy. “The U.S. has becoming a dumping ground for everybody else's problems. When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best,” the Trump voiceover says in the trailer. “They're sending people that have lots of problems. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists and it's gotta stop, and it's gotta stop fast,” states the video.

We sat down with Gael García Bernal, Jonás Cuarón and Jeffrey Dean Morgan to discuss the making of the film, how it was conceived, the backstories behind the characters, and how it all ties up to the current political situation in the United States with the coming elections on November 8. Check out the interviews in the video below, and don’t miss “Desierto” in select theaters on October 14, 2016.
