THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED
This award-winning video documents the events during and after the 2002 short-lived coup d'état against democratically-elected Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
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, Chavez returned to power amid cheering aides. Their film records what was probably history's shortest-lived coup d'état. It's a unique document about people power and an extraordinary portrait of the man The Wall Street Journal calls "Washington’s biggest Latin American headache."
