CineMás: La Jaula de Oro

The Latin American Coalition's Latino film series, CineMás, is proud to premiere the critically-acclaimed film, La Jaula de Oro. The story of three unaccompanied minors fleeing from their dangerous countries in hope of a better life.

Three teenagers from the slums of Guatemala--tough guy Juan (Brandon Lopez), Sara (Karen Martinez), who cuts her hair and binds her breasts in order to pass as a boy, because of the dangers a young girl faces during their journey, and Samuel (Carlos Chajon), the smallest and most easily swayed of the trio--travel toward the US in search of a better life; fleeing violence, poverty, and death. On their journey through Mexico, they meet Chauk (Rodolfo Dominguez), an Indian from Chiapas who doesn't speak Spanish. Traveling together in cargo trains, walking on the railroad tracks, they face harsh day-to-day realities. From their journey, director Diego Quemada-Díez fashions a powerful yet unsentimental thriller replete with action, humor and intrigue.

Join us after the film for a bilingual discussion about unaccompanied minors fleeing their dangerous home countries and the treacherous journey to get to the U.S.

Doors open at 6:00 PM and film beings at 7:00 PM. Tickets are $5.00 (CASH & CREDIT ACCEPTED) and can be bought the day of the screening at the Mint Museum Randolph. Please note: Film is in Spanish w/ English Subtitles.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
