Once Upon a Time in Venezuela

Show trailer
It's election time in the village, and no holds are barred, while nature rages and the water levels are rising. A cinematic report from a country that is slowly disintegrating.

Out on Lake Maracaibo, under the lightning strikes of the Catatumbo storm, preparations are underway in the village of Congo Mirador for the upcoming parliamentary elections. Here, the vigilant businesswoman and representative of the Chavist party, Tamara, is in the process of securing votes – and no holds are barred. The opposition consists of the school teacher Natalie, who only seems to be facing obstacles in her election campaign. But local controversies are not the only problem in the small fishing community. The lake, which acts as a shower, washing machine and highway, is swallowing the small wooden houses and forcing the residents to flee the escalating political and environmental chaos.
