We continue our Latin American Cinema season with the very polemic The Golden Dream.
From Ken Loach's protege, Diego Quemada-Diez, comes this astounding and gripping debut feature, that is a piercing and poetic road movie that follows the fortunes of four Guatemalan teenagers on a dangerous journey across the Mexican border into America.
Using improvisational techniques and non-professional actors, The Golden Dream has astounded and won critical praise world over, garnering numerous awards including a specially created prize, UN CERTAIN REGARD BEST TALENT PRIZE by Cannes Jury members in 2013.
"A beautiful film, full of human warmth, compassion and truth. The struggle of the innocent is caught with precision. And it is clear that the real enemy is beyond their reach or comprehension, but nonetheless very present in the film. Terrific!" Ken Loach
WINNER: Best Ensemble Cast - Cannes Film Festival
