April 22 – The Revolution will not be Televised

This incredible documentary was created when two independent filmmakers found themselves inside the presidential palace on 11 April 2002 when Hugo Chavez was forcibly removed from office by the Venezuelan elite and 48 hours later when, remarkably, he was returned to power by the people.

The film forces viewers to think about the connection between powerful leaders and popular democracy and provides an extraordinary portrait of the man The Wall Street Journal credits with making Venezuela “Washington’s biggest Latin American headache after the old standby, Cuba.”
