The Revolution will not be Televised

This is really a must watch documentary on Hugo Chavez... I never really knew much about him besides what was fed to me by American news channels.. I was told that he was a bad leader, a dictator that has been dictating Venezuela for years... I was so wrong.. Hugo Chavez practices real democracy.. Venezuela has been on Economic sanction for years by US, yet they have thrived...

THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED DIRECTED AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY KIM BARTLEY AND DONNACHA O'BRIAIN IRELAND, 2003 74 MINUTES IN SPANISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES 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'├ętat. It's a unique document about political muscle and 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."

The Revolution will not be Televised, it will be tweeted ;)
