As we plan a way forward we would like to hear the views of as many current and past club members as possible.

If you would your views taken into account please take a few minutes to complete this short survey in which you can share your thoughts.

(La Jaula de Oro)

The Golden Dream thumb
Director: Diego Quemada-Diez
Mexico / Spain 2013
102 minutes
Cert: CLUB


The title comes from a Mexican ballad, Jaula de Oro, about the despair of Mexicans who have actually made it into the US, but find it a "golden cage" because America accepts illegals' cheap labour without allowing them the papers they need to rise beyond the faceless servant class. Despite this, the US is still a magnet for the poor of Latin America. This tough, poetic and absorbing drama tells the story of three Mexican youths, excellently acted by non-professional leads, who battle their way north toward California's supposed promised land.
