Rêves d’or
(La jaula de oro)



Born in Guatemala, Juan, Sara and Samuel are hoping for a better life and attempting to reach the United States. Travelling through Mexico, they meet Chauk, and Indian from Chiapas who speaks no Spanish and joins up with them. But during their journeys on freight trains or alongside the rail tracks, they confront a hard and violent reality. Quemada-Diez never surrenders to melodrama, never becomes a horrifying film tract. The film’s extreme tension is rooted in the banal reality of these teenage lives. With no storyline contrivances, the impressive composition of the trio of young actors and the discreet yet remorseless mise en scène converge to implicitly point up man’s eternal imprisonment, out of one cage into another.
