Venezuela is a country rich in natural resources that for decades has prided itself on having one of the best public health systems in the entire region. Today, as the public health system collapses, a pharmacist, a trauma surgeon, a social activist, and two cancer patients confront the same questions as millions of other Venezuelans struggling to survive in a nation plunged into chaos: to protest or to acquiesce, to emigrate or to stick it out, to lose all hope or to hang on to faith?
The documentary film (2019, 70 minutes, in Spanish with English subtitles) will be followed by a panel discussion with:
Tamara Taraciuk Broner, Acting Deputy Director, Americas Division, Human Rights Watch
Cristina Hoyos, Head of Latin America and the Caribbean, Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces
Marc Hufty, Professor of Development Studies, the Graduate Institute, Geneva (moderator)
The screening is organised in partnership with Human Rights Watch.
Entry is free, but seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
