Don’t miss this (unfortunately too short) fragment of a Romulo Betancourt speech, stuck at the end of some old style adeco Internationale singing and the 1950 Perez Jimenez propaganda clip on the making of the Caracas-La Guaira highway (in corny 50s style English, even)…really amazing stuff.
There’s also a very cool, larger archive of historical photos only…

We’ve been able to hang on for 21 years in one of the craziest media landscapes in the world. We’ve seen different media outlets in Venezuela (and abroad) closing shop, something we’re looking to avoid at all costs. Your collaboration goes a long way in helping us weather the storm.Donate
