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 2017 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 Assistant Professor of Political Science Jacqueline McAllister and students in her seminar, "Human Rights in World Politics."
