Movie Info

While Irish filmmakers Kim Bartley and Donnacha O'Briain were in Venezuela to make a documentary about the charismatic, democratically elected president, Hugo Chavez, they ended up witnessing the failed coup that took place in April 2002 when a group of oil-interested parties tried to remove Chavez from office.

Audience Reviews for Chavez: Inside the Coup

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"
