The Barrel

Director : Anabel Cristina Rodríguez Ríos


Luis David lives in Congo Mirador, on the shore of Lake Maracaibo, where houses are built on stilts. This is also Venezuela’s largest oil field. Adults move around using motorboats while children can only swim, but some of them use old barrels as makeshift crafts.
Sometimes, children organize barrel races : Luis David is dying to take part in one of them, but he needs to find a barrel first.
