"Children of Las Brisas is a mesmerizing look into the lives of a group of young talented musicians making their way in Venezuela that will remain in your mind for a long time. By following her protagonists for more than nine years, first-time director Marianela Maldonado was able to construct an unforgettable portrait of a generation."

“It's clear that Dissandra, Edixon, and Wuilly's pursuit of a life as professional musicians provides an extraordinary portrait of life in Venezuela's Las Brisas neighborhood and the country as a whole. Individually and together, these young people and their families (especially the grandmothers) cling to the power of art to heal and transform their lives, against the harsh backdrop of Venezuela's deteriorating government and economy."
"These diverging destinies are like something from a 19th-century novel; Maldonado drops in a couple of extended shots of the fuel queues that, Alfonso Cuarón-style, feel freighted with history. Her film manages the rare feat of combining the intimate and the panoramic."
"Children of Las Brisas is a great tribute to those who fight day by day for a better future and who use art as an expression of resistance, wherever they lie on the political spectrum. Edixon, Dissandra, and Wuilly carry the feelings of a nation through the sound of their violins."
