Award-Winning Documentary Repression in Paradise Tells the Incredible Story of the Venezuelan Crisis
Repression in Paradise is the first feature documentary that follows the experiences of protestors, politicians, resistance members, and state police, through the Venezuelan Rebellion of 2017. Witness the escalating 4-month long protests as millions rebelled against an ever-growing repressive government hell-bent on staying in power at all costs. As international pressure mounted, fault lines began to form within the dictatorship and victory seemed close, but nothing was certain as personal ambitions and doubt in the opposition created uncertainty in the outcome. From massive marches to military uprisings get a firsthand look at a democracy on the verge of collapse and the heroism it produced in the most unlikely places.
This documentary is a dramatic tale of the experiences of brave kids, heartbroken parents, opposition leaders, and even state policemen willing to risk their lives to speak the truth. The documentary includes interviews with Maria Corina Machado, Julio "Coco" Jimenez, National Police, Resistance members, parents of Juan Pablo Pernalete, a student who was killed during a protest, arrested students, and leaders of the opposition, among others. Repression in Paradise has been selected for 3 film festivals: Indie Pasion Ibero-american Film Festival, Miami Independent Film Festival, and The South Film & Arts Academy Festival. It won Best Documentary 2018 in December at the Miami Independent Film Festival.
