A soon to be released Mexican film has sparked controversy for its use of an audio clip from a Donald Trump speech. Desierto is a fictional film about a group of migrants trying to sneak across the border into the United States, where they are stalked and killed by a racist vigilante with a rifle (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
A trailer for the film was released on Tuesday, and it juxtaposes Trump’s most vilified speech on illegal immigration, with scenes of the migrants being shot in the desert. The trailer ends with a title card that reads “Los Palabras Son Tan Peligrosas Como Las Balas” or “Words are as dangerous as bullets.”
It seems painfully obvious that the makers of this movie are capitalizing on Mexico’s widespread fears and derision of Donald Trump. At best it’s an exploitation film. What do you think?
