Relacin intermedial y relacin intragenrica: Consideraciones de pre-visionado para La jaula de oro Academic Article uri icon


  • The success of the film notwithstanding, a reading of La jaula de oro benefits from some contextualizing pre-viewing considerations, among them explaining the reasons for the trip undertaken by four youths in a kind of road movie. The films very title creates an intermedial relationship with popular music that triggers the thematics of the migration genre. The title also activates lexical-semantic features that nuance this genre. Since La jaula de oro assumes the activation of many motivational features associated with the migration genre, the filmic discourse is free to focus on the crossing and on delving into aspects of human relationships and into the difficulties faced by the emigrant youths. And, the film should be appreciated at the level of this nuance.
