LA JAULA DE ORO | THE GOLDEN DREAM

La Jaula de Oro / The Golden Dream. Diego Quemada Diez (Mexico, Guatemala), 2014/15

Three teenagers jump ‘The Beast’ – the infamous train that illegal immigrants board to take them from Guatemala, through Mexico, to the American border. The journey to a better life is fraught with danger. The only people they can trust on this perilous journey are each other.


Tres jóvenes emprenden una dura travesía, de los barrios bajos de Guatemala hacia los Estados Unidos, con la esperanza de alcanzar una vida mejor. En su camino encontrarán una serie de adversidades que los llevará a descubrir la fuerza de la amistad.

Spanish and Tzotzil with English subtitles.
