About the film: As the public health system collapses, a pharmacist, a trauma surgeon, a social activist, and two cancer patients confront the same questions as millions of other Venezuelans struggling to survive in a nation plunged into chaos: to protest or to acquiesce, to emigrate or to stick it out, to lose all hope or to hang on to faith? Together they take to the stage to act out their circumstances and find emotional release.
Está Todo Bien was chosen as the best film on One World Film Festival in Brussels 2019 -
