El Sistema y Los Niños de las Brisas


This November mi paisana Lorena Pino is running a series of films at Watershed Bristol that were directed by women from Latin America. There is one from Venezuela this Sunday and I thought I would share some background info about the context for this documentary, which we are so fortunate to have come to Bristol.


“La educación, como síntesis del saber y del conocimiento, es la vía para lograr una sociedad más perfecta, más consciente, más noble, más justa”.

José Antonio Abreu


🎞️ Los Niños de Las Brisas

Esta película trata de niños pobres en el Sistema musical de José Antonio Abreu que las da una esperanza a ser alguien. Pero pasa en una época de crítica del país con el chavismo. Dónde no había nada para los venezolanos y el chavismo vanagloriándose con el petróleo. Gustavo Dudamel ahora director de orquesta de la filarmónica de Los Angeles es un ejemplo..


This film is about poor children in the El Sistema music programme created by Abraham Abreu which gives hope for them to become someone. It took place in a critical time in the country under the 'Chavismo' regime. One example is Gustavo Dudamel who is now the director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.
