    An amazing, beautifully filmed depiction of the plight of Central Americans trying for "The Golden Dream" (the film's English title though the literal meaning is "The Golden Gage"). Don't know if there is a subtitled version available on or offline - I saw a Mexican DVD - but honestly, much of the film is meant to be understood through the pictures. In fact, a fair amount of the film is in Tzotzil (a Mayan language) just as unintelligible to most Mexicans as it is to people from other countries. As poignant as it is relevant worldwide as an illegal migrant's passage is never easy. The film leaves us asking why do they risk so much for what they get, but the message is clear - humans are attracted to hope like moths to a flame. An amazing pieced of work. 3 years 11 months ago
