Arepas Maduras


A satirical video by Lorena Alvarado.

Inspired by the news that two nephews of the wife of Venezuela’s President Nicolás Maduro, were involved in a cocaine trafficking scandal, Fabrica’s Social Campaigns Department created a satirical cooking video, directed by Venezuelan artist Lorena Alvarado.

“Arepas Maduras” is a recipe of a traditional dish, in this case made of two key ingredients: petroleum and cocaine. With Venezuela’s economy collapsing and the devastating food scarcity, this project brings to light the irony of a country so rich in oil, that petrol costs less than water.
