UC Davis Human Rights Film Festival Presents
"Women of the Venezuelan Chaos"
Sunday, November 4, 2018
[2017, 83 minutes, NR; in Spanish with English subtitles]
The UC Davis Human Rights Film Festival returns to the Crocker for its closing screening, Women of the Venezuelan Chaos. Now in its second year, the festival features eye-opening documentaries that shed light on issues of human rights taking place all over the world. Embodying strength and stoicism, five Venezuelan women from diverse backgrounds each draw a portrait of their country as it suffers extreme food and medicine shortages, a broken justice system, and widespread fear. The women share what life is really like for them and their families as the truth of the country’s difficulties are repeatedly denied by the government. Featuring stunning visuals and creative soundscapes, Women of the Venezuelan Chaos presents a beautiful country and people, who remain resilient and resourceful despite immense challenges. An audience Q&A will follow the screening. Sponsored by the UC Davis Humanities Institute and the Human Rights Studies Program at UC Davis in partnership with Human Rights Watch.
