It has been over four decades since Martin Sheen starred in Terrence Malick’s first film, the 1973 classic Badlands.

The film takes place in a small Latin American town that is still coping with the loss of its children ten years after a tidal wave destroyed the local school. The clip below introduces us to this community — and to a priest played by Sheen, who has been trying in vain to persuade the grieving mothers to have more children:

The filmmakers shot two versions of the film — one in Spanish and one in English — and both versions are coming to theatres on September 16.

Here is the poster for the film:
