The Revolution

We went to see a documentary tonight, titled “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.” I cannot recommend this film enough.

The documentary makers started out to make a film about Venezuela’s president, Hugo Chavez. What they ended up capturing on film was the coup that ousted him and the return of the democratically elected government, all in a matter of a few days. This is literally the anatomy of a coup on film. Unbelieveable.

If you live in Portland, you can see this at Cinema 21, in NW Portland. It’s playing until Thursday. This is a film worth seeing. I can’t recommend it enough.

The scary part: in Venezuela, the corporate media is on the opposite side of the government, and we see just how much damage they can do (more here). In this country, the corporate media is clearly on the side of the administration. They wield immense power, and it scares me to think of what could happen if the media decided to take an even more active role in shaping politics than they already do. It’s frightening.
