Director Jim McKay's timely 'En el Séptimo Día' humanizes immigration and labor struggles in the Trump era

I started making TV shows and I was really fortunate that I was getting work on very good ones like “The Wire” and “Big Love” and “Breaking Bad.” I loved the work, and the more I did, the more I was offered, so I just got into this cycle. At the time, I also had small-ish kids, so it was really tough for me to break out of that, especially to do a small movie. When you’re doing something small that you’re not getting paid to work on, you have to figure out how you’re going to do that financially.
