UC Davis Human Rights Film Festival – “Women of the Venezuelan Chaos”

November 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Time: 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Location: Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento

Please RSVP here.

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. 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 uniquely beautiful country and people, who remain resilient and resourceful despite the immense challenges they face.

The selected films bear powerful and moving witness to human rights issues both locally and globally and will inspire our community with the knowledge and commitments that can make a difference. Audiences will have a chance to discuss the films in Q&A sessions with the filmmaker and/or UC faculty after the films.

This event is sponsored by UC Davis Humanities Institute, Human Rights Studies, in partnership with Human Rights Watch.
