DIRECTOR’S NOTE

Toilet paper stock in a country that’s 9,415 km away causes a tempestuous response within the Greek and other European Parliaments. Venezuela, a state on the brink of economic collapse, is considered as a major threat to the national security of the USA. International news agencies lie, comparing the refugee crisis in Venezuela to that of the Rohingya people in Myanmar.

A documentary on Venezuela is not just about Venezuela. It is not mainly about Venezuela. It may not even be about Venezuela at all.

A documentary on Venezuela is a study on the modern (and not so modern) forms of propaganda and of regime change operations in Latin America and Europe.

It is also an opportunity to measure democracy in other parts of the world. To talk about political prisoners in Catalonia and of a permanent state of emergency in France. It is an opportunity to think about why there are not enough medical supplies in Caracas, but also why some people have decayed teeth in Los Angeles.

As it is always the case, the problem with a documentary of this sort, that seeks to criticize the dominant narrative, is that it will never receive any funding if it is not first and foremost supported by its viewers.

Every step of this journey is also a complete reporting mission that only you can support.

Like in our four previous documentaries (Debtocracy, Catastroika, Fascism Inc and This Is Not A Coup the people that will help us fund this project, will be the first to get the passwords and watch it for free. The completion of the documentary will depend on funding flow. However, our goal is to deliver the final copy before the end of 2018.

Remember, though, that in this project the journey is equally important…
