Maxx Caicedo Hopes To Bring Awareness With The New Documentary A La Calle [Exclusive Interview]

A La Calle – To The Street

Maxx Caicedo makes his directorial debut with HBO Max’s new documentary A La Calle. The film demonstrates Venezuelans struggle under the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro.

The Synopsis

A La Calle is a firsthand account of the extraordinary efforts of ordinary Venezuelans to reclaim their democracy from the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro, whose corrupt and brutal policies have plunged the country into economic ruin. Working with a network of clandestine camera crews, the filmmakers spent three years recording exclusive interviews with key opposition figures including Leopoldo López — whose arrest and imprisonment inspired a national movement — and grassroots activist Nixon Leal, as well as a host of everyday citizens. As acting interim President Juan Guaidó works to rally international opposition to the Maduro regime, the corrupt dictator and his allies tighten their hold over a nation already crippled by hyperinflation, blocking life-saving humanitarian aid and repressing dissent with politically motivated arrests, torture and killings. A La Calle captures the remarkable courage of the Venezuelan people as they unite to restore liberty to their country.
