Movie Info

Once upon a time, the Venezuelan village of Congo Mirador was prosperous, alive with fisherman and poets. Now it is decaying and disintegrating -- a small but prophetic reflection of Venezuela itself.

  • The film provides an illuminating first-hand account of a country in despair.

    March 3, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Ríos' film is visually immersive to the community and its passage of time, though it does make you wish you knew more about the people of Congo Mirador.

    January 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Once Upon a Time in Venezuela offers quite the dystopian fairy tale, which we should all heed, lest we fall under a curse of venal mismanagement.

    February 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Rios makes the political personal and, therefore, more relatable to an audience who is not on the ground seeing the destruction of her country unfold.

    February 11, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • The colorful images have a way of immersing you into the setting, helping the outside viewer see what the residents of the town already know.

    February 7, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Once Upon a Time in Venezuela is a haunting look at a dying region and the people who left it behind. Ríos sugarcoats nothing, a raw testimonial of government corruption.
