IT'S ALL GOOD - ESTA TODO BIEN

Venezuela is a country rich in natural resources that for decades has prided itself on having one of the best public health systems in the entire region. Today, the near-total collapse of Venezuela’s health system is resulting in severe medicine shortages, a dramatic increase in infant mortality, the reappearance of once-eradicated diseases like diphtheria, and a mass exodus of doctors to hospitals overseas. In Está Todo Bien, Caracas-born Tuki Jencquel asks a pharmacist, trauma surgeon, activist and two patients to confront the same questions millions of Venezuelans are facing: protest or acquiesce, emigrate or remain, lose all hope or hang onto faith?

Quotes & Other

Statement of the jury for the award for BEST FILM at One World Film Festival Brussels:

"The winning film is instrumental in raising awareness about a current issue while stressing the importance of economic and social rights (including the right to healthcare) as basic human rights. Despite the geographical distance, the film offers parallels to the current situation in European countries, where the right to healthcare becomes a matter of politicization. The jury also appreciated the intense humanity and the dignified way in which the film follows the characters through their illness and empowers them to be the main actors of their own documented story and of the change that the country needs. The daily reality of the lives featured in the film brings the story close to a European viewer. Combined with a high-quality filmmaking and the engaging form of representation, it is an urgent and powerful film."
