Women of the Venezuelan Chaos

A film by Margarita Cadenas | 2018 | 83 minutes

Embodying strength and stoicism, five Venezuelan women from diverse backgrounds and generations 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 – a nurse, community worker, unemployed mother, retired police commissioner and a waitress – 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. A powerful investigative documentary, Margarita Cadenas’ WOMEN OF THE VENEZUELAN CHAOS presents a uniquely beautiful country and people, who remain resilient and resourceful despite the immense challenges they face.


“A must-see documentary. Powerful, heart-wrenching and vitally important.”
