Me, my dad, and Chávez

Ruxandra Guidi left Venezuela for the U.S. in 1990, when she was just 14. Over time she and her father drifted apart; he was an ardent believer in the revolution, she was disillusioned by the fate of the nation she once called home. Separated by ideology, they carried on with their lives in starkly different places, each sticking to the truth they’d chosen to hear. Now, with the situation in Venezuelan as bad as it’s been, Ruxandra is reminded why she can’t give up on her father.
