Video: Mini-Documentaries Showcase Venezuelan Artists

Through their YouTube account, the creative team Mostro Contenidos [es] has released a documentary series called ‘Memorabilia‘ [es, en], where they present a collection of short interviews with Venezuelan personalities who have stood out -nationally and internationally- in film, entertainment, and the arts.

In their promotional video, the team describes how, despite their own doubts in undertaking a project without financing, they've managed to gather interviews with an interesting array of characters. In the videos, which have been shared by many in Venezuelan social networks, viewers can hear about the artists’ opinions, experiences and work. These interviews offer a glimpse into the history of contemporary Venezuela and how some of the identities that define it are shaped.
