Documentary: How Venezuela got this far


Why do Venezuelans have to queue before shops? Why is there so much insecurity and inflation? Why is Venezuelan politics so polarised? We create a web-documentary that explains the history and logic of Venezuela’s problems!

The first set of videos tell the recent political history of Venezuela and how it got so polarised.

Somewhere between a social scientist and a journalist, I currently work as a news editor for major Swiss newspapers and manage the program «Peace & Security» at the think tank foraus – Swiss Forum on Foreign Policy. In 2015 I founded the website, where in 2016 friends and I published the first «open-source» documentary about Venezuela and short documentaries about Catalan separatism and ISIS. Originally, I'm an IT engineer, but I later studied International Relations (MA) at the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) and Development and Peace Studies (BA) at University Of Bradford.

Democrat, Venezuelan, salsa enthusiast -- in that order. I also hold an M.A. in International Relations from IBEI in Spain and an M.S. in International Economics from the UCV in Venezuela. I spend much of my time scavenging through government documents to try to find out how the government wasted its largest revenue boom in history.
