The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

Say what you will about Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s highly publicized president, but the man knows how to keep the global audience captivated. Here’s a guy who is outspoken in his criticism of the Bush Administration and the West as a whole, and is in a powerful position due to Venezuela being the fourth largest exporter of oil to the world. If you look at history, the US has not been kind to people who criticize the establishment, so one would think that Hugo probably has to watch his back, as folks are bound to try to take him down at some point. The thing is, they already tried to take him down, as shown in this film, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised, which is posted below. I know the image is small, so you can go here and enlarge it to full screen, although its still kind of blurry. I saw this about a year ago and was blown away. I’ve been trying to get my hands on a copy ever since, but being that its 2007, its of course posted all over the web. Hugo got re-elected by a landslide recently so Venezuela is sure to stay in the news. With everything that’s written about him, good or bad, this film has put some things in perspective for me.
