The Mexican-Spanish film La jaula de Oro (The Golden Cage), by movie maker Diego Quemada-Diez, received the Roque Dalton award, which Radio Havana Cuba grants every year to a film contesting the International Festival of the New Latin American Cinema.
The film, which focuses on real stories of emigrants, is an example to follow if a movie maker really wants to have the public get to conclusions that demystify the United States, without resorting to extreme drama, as Quemada-Diez said.
The jury unanimously agreed to acknowledge a film that in a crude manner offers a realistic and transparent look into an issue affecting many Latin American and Caribbean nations.
Radio Havana Cuba grants its Roque Dalton prize every year to a film that better reflects an aspect of today’s Latin American reality.
