                        Venezuelan election documentary ‘Carmen Waits’ to show at Flamingo Shanghai

                        • With the US elections less than a month away, Flamingo Shanghai invites you to watch Carmen Waits, an independent documentary shot and directed by Natalie Cubides-Brady, formerly of Flamingo.

                          Shot in the lead up to Hugo Chavez’s election in 2012, Carmen Waits focuses on the life of Carmen Trillos, the filmmaker's aunt, who lives in a working class neighbourhood in Caracas, Venezuela. By focusing on the moments when myth, religion and faith interact with modern politics, the film explores the gaps between grand political promises and everyday lives.

                          Doors open on Wednesday October 12 at 6.30pm, with the screening starting at 7pm. Afterwards, director Natalie Cubides-Brady will host a Q&A session.

                          The event will take place at the Flamingo Shanghai offices, 7/F, Building 11, 207 Mengzi Road (between Xietu Road and Liyuan Road), near Madang Lu metro station.
