The Golden Cage
Diego Quemada Diez was born in Burgos, Castilla y León, Spain. He has directed the short films A Table is a Table (01), I Want to Be a Pilot (06) and La morena (06). The Golden Cage (13) is his feature debut.
Telling the story of three young Guatemalans attempting to enter the United States through Mexico, Diego Quemada Diez’s startling debut prompts us to contemplate the harsh circumstances that many migrants face, generating its urgency and sense of grim adventure through deep compassion and a formidable political conscience.
