The Golden Dream (La jaula de oro)
Cert: 15 Year: 2013 Length: 102 mins Language: Spanish/English
A group of Guatemalan teenagers are ill prepared for the precarious journey that takes them from their native country to what they hope will be a bright new life in the United States. Diego Quemada-Díez's debut feature draws on outstanding performances from his young, non-professional cast.
"The film succeeds as both a gritty, uncompromising portrait of the teenagers' travels and a moving, eloquent testament to the power of friendship and camaraderie in the most testing of circumstances." (London FF)

It is a very substantial movie, with great compassion and urgency.
