¿ Qué Pasa Venezuela ?
November 2 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Milagro presents the North American Premiere of ¿Qué Pasa Venezuela? – Stories of the Exodus in Spanish and English.
On November 2nd from 1 – 4 pm TodoSomos will host an afternoon of readings of first-person testimonies from Venezuelan refugees as they begin their journey on foot in search of safety and stability in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Chile. These stories come from the streets of Cucuta, Bogota and Pamplona (a town on the border, midway through their climb over a 12,000 mountain pass).
Through these stories and the panel discussion to follow we hope to give context to the plight of those caught in the middle of the struggle for control of a country that has become a failed state, a country known for Chavismo and a country known for having the world’s largest known reserves of petroleum. The readings and panel discussion will be followed by a short reception.
