This groundbreaking new documentary by Aleida Guevara (Che Guevara’s daughter), “Chávez, Venezuela and the New Latin America,” explores Venezuela’s explosive revolutionary terrain post-April 2002--when Hugo Chávez survived a coup attempt instigated by the United States. Featuring interviews with Hugo Chávez, President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, and Jorge García Carneiro, newly appointed head of the Venezuelan Armed Forces, along with others who are involved in the country’s many social programs. This film affords a rare opportunity to glimpse through the blockade of information imposed by the United States into a country rich with hope, dreams and... oil. 2004, 55min. Spanish with English subtitles.
This is a bilingual event co-sponsored by the San Bruno Greens and ANSWER.
