Opening film of last festival La Jaula de Oro (The Golden Cage) by director Diego Quemada Díez is now shown in Dutch cinemas.
Beautifully subdued and adventurous road movie about the dangerous ‘teenage tour’ undertaken by Juan, Sara and Samuel. Only 15 years of age and without any papers, they set out on a journey which takes them from Guatemala across Mexico to the promised land, America. Despite their differences they are driven by the ambition to share in the wealth of the City of Angels: Los Angeles.
The Guardian about La Jaula de Oro: "It is a very substantial movie, with great compassion and urgency."
