Help Organize a Screening!

We are looking for volunteers and partnerships to help organize community screenings (it can be at a university, school, theater, outside, inside, in any city or country around the world.) We will be using Tugg.com to find the movie theaters and rent them out and possibly other event locations. The only thing required of the organizer(s) is to help promote the screening to fill enough seats to cover the costs of the rental using Tugg.com. You will be publicly credited for helping out with the distribution campaign of Repression in Paradise and become part of this great movement.

If you are interested or know someone who could be, message us on Facebook (https://facebook.com/repressioninparadise) or visit our contact page https://repressioninparadise.com/contact

Trailer Release - July 16, 2018

The official trailer for Repression in Paradise will be released on July 16th, 2018. A date that is very important for all Venezuelans across the world.

Last year, on that very same date, Venezuelans took part in the largest single act of protests in Latin America when over 7,600,000 people voted in an unofficial referendum known as the Popular Consult against the dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro.

The vote revolved around 3 key questions:

  1. Are you against recognizing the National Constitutent Assembly proposed by Nicolas Madura without the approval of the people of Venezuela?
  2. Do you demand that the National Armed Forces obey and defend the constitution of 1999 and back the decisions of the National Assembly?
  3. Do you approve that the Public Powers be renewed in following with the agreements established within the Constitution, such as holding new elections and creating a new government of national unity?

Over 98% of the people voted Yes to all three questions showing that the country was ready for a transitional government and were against the National Constituent Assembly which would be in charge of rewriting the constitution of Venezuela, illegally.

One Year Later

12 months later and we are still reeling from the bad decisions made after the vote with the dictatorship still in power, and the country suffering from the worst humanitarian crisis in its history. The crisis has been so bad and inflation rampant that millions have fled to neighboring countries, creating an entirely different crisis in those countries with massive refugees flowing in. In 2017, Venezuelans were the number 1 source of refugees for the United States.

With such an important anniversary approaching, we have decided that July 16th would be the perfect day to release the trailer for this documentary that recounts the events and tells the story of many of those that gave it all for freedom in Venezuela.

Where Can I View The Trailer?

We will be posting the trailer here on https://repressioninparadise.com, on our official Facebook page https://facebook.com/repressioninparadise and on the director's Twitter page, https://twitter.com/AlvingGarcia.

How You Can Help Spread the Word

Every like we get, every follow we gain, and every share the film receives, the better chance we have to get the documentary seen and shared. This will help spread the word about Repression in Paradise and get our posts on other’s timelines. We hope to take this documentary and the great story about the Venezuelan people’s fight for freedom to all major movie markets around the world so that everyone can see that those lives that were lost were not in vain. This will be our form of rebellion against the narco-state of Nicolas Maduro. It may not be the same as an armed uprising, but changing the hearts and minds of people around the world is a powerful tool as well.

Help us get the word out and hurt the tyrannical government of Maduro where it hurts the most. International pressure. We have strength in numbers and this documentary is aimed at making awareness of the abuses in Venezuela so we can increase that international pressure and restore democracy to Venezuela.
