"SIMÓN" The Film - A Venezuelan Story

In this very moment,  young Venezuelans are being tortured in prison cells for voicing their desire for freedom. We need your help to give them a voice and tell their story by making the film "Simón".

"Simón" is a feature film inspired by true events that tells the story of Simón, a young Venezuelan student leader who protested in the streets of Venezuela, was captured and tortured, and then fled to Miami (USA) to seek political asylum.
42960426_157299396643945_r.jpegLike Simón, over 5 million Venezuelans have fled the country in the past years due to the devastating humanitarian crisis currently happening in the country, which include shortages of food, medicine, electricity, and an inflation of over 1,000,000%. Estimates show there will be more Venezuelan refugees than Syrian refugees in 2020.
42960426_1572994043963142_r.jpegThis movie will show the world what is going on in Venezuela, raise awareness, generate empathy, and incentivize action to achieve solutions. Please help us with a contribution to make this film a reality.

We thank you for your contribution and for sharing this with others!
