Miami, Mar. 13 (Notimex).- The film "Make love great again" by the young Mexican director Aaron Agrasánchez addresses the drama of a Mexican-American couple in which love overcomes the tortuous immigration procedures in the era of US President, Donald Trump.
"The film has a very strong political title and addresses the current migratory issue but what I want is for people to really enjoy it as a love story," the young director told Notimex.
The film, which underwent a name change after completing its filming to coincide with Trump's campaign slogan "Make America Great Again," premiered in Florida on the eve of the Miami International Film Festival.
"Make love great again", produced by Alex Agrasanchez, from a Mexican family with four generations in the cinema, was filmed in Miami and in it the Cuban Alina Robert, the American David Haack, and the Mexican Eduardo Yañez participated, among others.
Robert gives life to the character of "Natalie", a Mexican from Veracruz who marries the American "Chris" (David Haack) and both must face the tortuous immigration process to prove that their marriage is real and not a fraud to get residency permanent.
"She is a girl who comes to study and who really has a better life in her country where she has everything she needs but stays for love," Agrasánchez said.
But the tape also shows how the system can become unfair to the undocumented who want to do things right. The couple undergoes an interrogation on his intimacies by a pair of federal agents in charge of approving the truth of his marriage.
Alex Agrasánchez, originally from Mexico City, for whom it is his first attempt with a tape in English, said he surrounded himself with talented people such as the sound engineer, Jeffrey Stern, who worked with Martin Socorses and the producer Tom Musca who has done movies with Edward James Olmos.
The film competes in the festival within the category Knight Made in MIA, which brings together films, shorts and documentaries that have been filmed in South Florida. The film came in second place as best feature film at the International Festival of Carmel, California last October.
