    La Jaula de Oro (The Cage of Gold/ The Golden Dream) is a 2013 Mexican feature film directed by Diego Quemada-Díez. The film features an ensemble cast of Central American, young, undocumented immigrants fleeing Guatemala, and who make their way to the United States in a harrowing fashion by foot and by “la bestia,” the train that snakes its way to the border, with immigrants clinging to it at great peril. This is a timely film, made with great skill and narrative power.  After the film, a moderated discussion with La Jaula producer, Luis Salinas, will take place.
