In 1944, Caracas hosts the 7th Amateur Baseball World Series. The organizers decide that the beauty queen of the event has to be elected via a popular vote. The title is disputed by Yolanda Leal, a school teacher from a humble neighborhood, and Oly Clemente, a young woman from Caracas’ high society.
The beauty pageant soon turns into a passionate contest. The country was entering a transition to democracy and the newly formed political organizations understood the event as a means to promote their ideas.
The first universal election in Venezuela was held in order to choose a beauty queen.
The Queen of the People (La Reina del Pueblo) is a documentary by Juan Andrés Bello. It was produced by Producciones Triana, with the participation of Centro Nacional Autónomo de Cinematografía.

A 1/2 hour discussion after the film will be conducted in Spanish.
