Film: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Published Coordinators - Thu, 12/04/2003 - 5:47am

This documentary depicts the overthrow and return to power of President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela in a coup in 2002.

HUGO CHAVEZ ELECTED PRESIDENT OF VENEZUELA IN 1998, IS A COLORFUL, UNPREDICTABLE FOLK HERO, beloved by his nation's working class and a tough-as-nails, quixotic opponent to the power structure that would see him deposed.

Two independent filmmakers were inside the presidential palace on April 11, 2002, when he was forcibly removed from office. They were also present 48 hours later when, remarkably, he returned to power amid cheering aides. Their film records what was probably history's shortest-lived coup d'état.
