Synopsis

Over a span of a decade, the documentary Children of Las Brisas follows three Venezuelan students in their struggle to become professional musicians within the ranks of the renowned orchestra organization “El Sistema”. Edixon, Dissandra and Wuilly do not give up in their attempts to achieve a better future and, through their gazes, the portrait of a country under the rule of an autocratic regime is drawn.

Children of Las Brisas is a story of resistance, resilience and perseverance that explores the power of discipline and classical music as tools for survival.
