Classic documentary: Venezuela --The revolution will not be televised (2002)

Kim Bartley and Donnacha O'Brian

Shifting focus, they followed the events as they occurred. During their filming, the crew recorded images that contradicted explanations given by the anti-Chávez opposition, the private media, the US State Department and then White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer. The documentary reveals that the coup was the result of a conspiracy between various old guard and anti-Chávez factions within Venezuela and the United States.It also graphically shows how Venezuela's poor and working people -- the overwhelming majority of the population -- mobilised in their hundreds of thousands to defeat the coup.
