Kate Del Castillo Wants All Of Us To See A Different Side Of Mexico In New Netflix Show “Ingobernable”

In the new Netflix series, only the second original one to be completely in Spanish (the first was “Club de Cuervos”), “Ingobernable” follows Mexico’s First Lady, Emilia Urquiza (Kate Del Castillo) as she is being chased for the assassination of her husband, the President of Mexico Diego Nava (Erik Hayser).

The trailer shows the high power couple in a relationship in decline, tumbling down in tumultuous fashion.

With a divorce looming, and what appear to be one too many drinks, a body goes flying off a roof several floors down, crushing the roof of a government issued SUV like a soda can. The body? That of Diego Nava Martinez, the young handsome president of Mexico.

Emilia then disappears and sets out on the run from the law, using her security expertise to evade officials.

Struggling to find anyone who would believe it wasn’t her, she attempts to clear her name, while also trying to remain free. Thus begins the story of “Ingobernable.”

“Ingobernable” is the Spanish word for “ungovernable” or “unmanageable,” which seems totally appropriate for Castillo who is no stranger to controversy.

If she doesn’t look familiar – even though she’s been on “Jane The Virgin” and “Weeds” – her name might ring a bell for you. Castillo was allegedly at the heart of the controversy surrounding Sean Penn’s infamous, and probably strangest of all time, interview with El Chapo.

Recently Castillo sat down with Vanity Fair to discuss the new action packed show and talk (as much as she legally can), about her feelings on the El Chapo debacle.

Despite her legal battles, she’s excited for viewers to see Mexico in a new light.

Of the political climate between the U.S. and Mexico and how she sees her show having an impact there, she says: “They’re gonna see the Mexico that they don’t know,” in the article she continues: “This wealthy, powerful, beautiful, cultural Mexico. And exactly the opposite. Those contrasts, I think it’s appealing for everybody.”

In a line from the trailer she says “If you think you’ve seen me fight, you haven’t seen anything yet.”

Hearing it from Castillo, it’s hard to tell whether that’s coming from her character Emilia Urquiza, or from her personally.


“Ingobernable” is available to stream on Netflix now.

All Of The Documentaries Feminists Should Watch While In Quarantine

Netflix

Just because it might seem as if the world is on pause, it doesn’t mean that our efforts to learn more about it and better ourselves should be.

Documentaries alongside biographies can teach us so much about the world we live in and open our eyes to its complexities, even teaching us about the obstacles we did not know were right in front of us. As women of color, there are so many, and often times we use documentaries to learn about them, so we can better understand how to propel ourselves forward and continue to succeed. To make sure that you do too, we’re rounding up documentaries for you to learn, grow, and build hope from while in quarantine.

Check the documentaries we’re binging now that we’ve got the time below!

Becoming (2020)

Former First Lady Michelle Obama takes an intimate look at her life, relationships, and dreams in this documentary which sees her touring the country while promoting her book Becoming. The New York Times describes the film as showing “a familiar, albeit more carefree, former first lady.”

AKA Jane Roe (2020)

This documentary by Nick McSweeney highlights Norma McCorvey, the woman who made history as “Jane Roe” in the landmark 1973 Supreme Court case Roe vs. Wade. Beyond the shock value of the movie’s twist, which unearths the reasons why McCorvey ultimately turned her back on the movement that advocated for her right to choose, it tells a story about the ruthlessness of political agendas.

Abuelas: Grandmothers On A Mission (2013)

Three decades after Argentinean mothers created a movement demanding Argentinean officials to discover what happened with the sons and daughters who “disappeared” during Argentina’s Dirty War, the grandmothers continue their efforts in this documentary.

Chisholm ’72: Unbought & Unbossed (2004)

The historical documentary follows Brooklyn Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm during her campaign for the Democratic Party presidential nomination in 1972. It will serve as an impressive reminder of this Black woman’s might and the fight she managed to get us all passionate about.

Directed by Tamara Kotevska and Ljubomir Stefanov this documentary shows how the beekeeper’s life is affected when the ancient techniques she uses to farm bees are impacted by a new family who moves into the neighborhood and brings modern technology with them.

Knock Down The House (2019)

This documentary featuring Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the league of women who ran for Congress in 2018 including Cori Bush, Paula Jean Swearengin, and Amy Vilela made waves when it first debuted on Netflix. Just as it did for us, we imagine it will give you a whole heck of a lot of hope and pride in the woman who fight for our rights and country.
