New series shows dark face of Mexico by Gael Garcia Bernal


With the television series Aquí en la Tierra , which premieres in Latin America next Friday, the Mexican star Gael García Bernal hopes to contribute to the political debate in Mexico by using the most obscure face of the country as a common thread: corruption.

The actor, producer and director presents a poignant story about the uniqueness of politics in Latin America and human relations, through characters struggling to find their place in the world.

It is the first installment of the producer that he leads together with his friend and colleague Diego Luna, La Corriente del Golfo. “Reality has terrible coincidences with fiction.

Every day we can find things that happen in reality that are made of film. One already says: ‘Well, how far?’ “He said. In this series” we made a fable where there is an anti-corruption prosecutor, and what happens to the anti-corruption prosecutor when he comes to do something that knocks down the president? In our series they assassinate him, “he stressed.

García Bernal believes that through a series “it can lead to more complex questions (…) or discussions much higher than a simple discussion with political tints”.

This, after the actor embarked recently in a discussion, via Twitter, with Javier Lozano, spokesman for the presidential candidate of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), José Antonio Meade.
