Movie Info

In April 2002, the democratically elected Venezuelan president, Hugo Chavez, faces a coup d'état by an American-backed opposition party. The two-day coup fails to topple Chávez, but the tumultuous event proves to be great dramatic material for two Irish filmmakers who happen to be making a documentary about Chavez as the coup erupts. They capture footage of the massive opposition and pro-Chavez crowds and analyze how Venezuelan TV manipulated images for propaganda purposes.

    Rarely has the usage of the phrase "at the right place, at the right time" been more apt. Makes for a fantastic double-feature with "Puente Llaguno: Claves de Una Masacre"
