Donald Trump Versus Latinos – A Mythical Scrap On The US Border

This timely, mesmerizing short film depicting a fantastical Donald Trump-like robot violently guarding the US border with Mexico was made by Uruguayan production house Aparato. The studio’s stated mission is to “change the world using our geeky weapons: cinematography, visual effects and CGI.”

M.A.M.O.N. (Monitor Against Mexicans Over Nationwide) is a satirical fantasy sci-fi short film that explores with black humour and lots of VFX the outrageous consequences of Donald Trump´s plan of banning immigration and building an enormous wall on the Mexico – US border. The dark comedy showcases a spectacular fight involving bizarre weapons, and numerous dark jokes about the cliches and stereotypical antics of the Mexican and Latino community, as the quinceañera, the quetzalcoatl, the lucha libre, the mariachi, the chapulín colorado, etc.

Bravo.
