Film screening ChavezHas the Bolivarian Revolution died with its leader’s death?

In the Western World, Venezuela ‘s situation gets thrown around to by those on the left and right as an ‘example’ - why “socialism failed”, why “nationalisation is good” - to illustrate vacuous points on Twitter disputes. This belittles the severity of the situation; dehumanises its actors. There is so much more to this country’s recent experience beyond this tragicomic depiction.

The film is an overview of the current crisis in Venezuela. Chronicles the rise and fall of Chávez’s ‘Bolivarian Revolution’. Starting with his death, in 2013.

Interviewing senior politicians (Teodoro Petkoff and Douglas Bravo), scholars (Margarita López Maya), chavistas (Antonia Muñoz, PSUV) and opposition leaders (Leopoldo López) - among others - the documentary provides a balanced critical perspective on the Bolivarian Revolution. From the people that lived it first-hand.
