The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
Shot by two Irish journalists who happened to be in Caracas doing a story on the Cuba-friendly Chavez, the film depicts his arrest and the dissolution of the National Assembly by a coalition of military and allegedly U.S.-backed industrial leaders, and his restoration to office two days later after more than a million supporters took to the street.
All these events were fully documented by government-owned media and exposed by the filmmakers in the wake of the failed coup. (74 mins.)
