The Cage” by José Salaverría was the surprise film of the Sci-Fi Film Festival in Berlin 2018. Now UCM.ONE is finally releasing this first science fiction film from Venezuela with its visually breathtaking nature shots in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on Blu-Ray and DVD on the U1 Films Berlin label. At the same time, the film can also be found digitally on download and streaming portals.


After humanity has been nearly wiped out by aliens, there seem to be only two people left: Eva (Karina Velásquez) and Fausto (Juvel Vielma). Since the invasion, both have been living on the outskirts of the ruins of a former big city, in the midst of the now returning wilderness. Only Fausto ventures into the city now and then to look for essentials. This is not a safe undertaking, as the invaders’ spaceships and drones are everywhere in the sky and constantly scan the surroundings for survivors.

One day, the usual routine is unexpectedly interrupted by the arrival of a third survivor, the mysterious Dafne (Ananda Troconis). But Dafne not only brings back a new positive attitude towards life, she herself seems to be part of a larger plan to save humanity.
