Women of the Venezuelan Chaos (2017)

Tuesday, February 12, 7:00 PM
Community Foundation Theater, Gund Gallery

Embodying strength and stoicism, five Venezuelan women from diverse backgrounds each draw a portrait of their country as it suffers under the worst crisis in its history amid extreme food and medicine shortages, a broken justice system, and widespread fear. This documentary presents a uniquely beautiful country and people, who remain resilient and resourceful despite the immense challenges they face.

After the film, a discussion will be led by Professor Jacqueline McAllister and students in her “International Relations” class.
