About the Film

Children of Las Brisas is a story of resistance, resilience and perseverance that explores the power of discipline and classical music as tools for survival.The documentary follows three Venezuelan children from the impoverished Las Brisas neighborhood in their quest to become professional musicians within the ranks of “El Sistema” music program.

Throughout a decade, Edixon, Dissandra and Wuilly try to achieve a better future as they face the great challenges of the country’s dire situation. The Venezuelan crisis makes it impossible for them to accomplish their dreams and in their struggle they represent a society taken over by an autocratic regime.
