BULLETS OF PEACE (Ráfagas de Paz)

In February 2014 the student protests in Venezuela paralyzed the country. The University community peacefully demanded personal security, and a solution to the heavy economic crisis, but the Government of Nicolás Maduro responded with hard military repression and bullets. The aftermath resulted in 43 people killed by the National Guard and the armed government-supported groups. In the meantime, Maduro kept dancing on TV aiming to distract people's attention, while innocent students were still being buried. This piece attempts to use experimental imagery to, denounce these behaviours, proving that power can corrupt even the greatest of idealists.
