ONCE UPON A TIME IN VENEZUELA

Directed by Anabel Rodríguez Ríos
Week 2 – Film rental available Friday, July 17 – Thursday, July 23

Congo Mirador was once a magical, thriving fishing community, built on stilts near Latin American’s biggest oil field. But recently, Venezuela has spiraled into chaos and violence, and the village is sinking from pollution and neglect. At the center of the existential fight stands Mrs. Tamara, the Chavez-worshipping coordinator not above bribery and intimidation, and Natalie, her most vocal critic and school teacher. As confidence erodes under President Maduro, Venezuela is fast becoming the world’s worst refugee crisis in 2020. Can the village stay afloat or will it become a political and ecological casualty?
