Synopsis: February 2009 marked 10 years since Hugo Chavez took office, following a landslide election victory, and launched his revolution to bring radical change to Venezuela. While wildly popular with many in the country, Chavez's policies and his outspoken criticisms of the U.S. government have made him powerful enemies, both at home and abroad, especially in the media. Filmed in Caracas in November 2008, on the eve of the 10th anniversary of Chavez's controversial presidency, this feature-length documentary takes a journey into the heart of Venezuela's revolution to listen to the voices of the people driving the process forward.
Event details: 6.30pm-8.30pm, Thursday August 20th (film starts at 7pm)
Khalili Lecture Theatre, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square, London WC1H OXG. Nearest Tube: Russell Square
