Hugo Chavez, elected president of Venezuela in 1998,
is a colorful, unpredictable folk hero, beloved by his
nation's working class and a tough-as-nails, quixotic
opponent to the power structure that would see him
deposed. Two independent filmmakers were inside the
presidential palace on April 11, 2002, when he was
forcibly removed from office. They were also present
48 hours later when, remarkably, he returned to power
amid cheering aids. Their film records what was
probably history's shortest-lived coup d'etat. It's a
unique documentary about political muscle and an
extraordinary portrait of the man The Wall Street
Journal credits with making Venezuela "Washington's
biggest Latin American headache after the old standby,
Cuba." The film will be followed by a discussion.
Friday Night at the Movies, a series of films of
social and political signficance, presented the second
Friday of each month, is a program of the Social
Action Committee of Arlington Street Church. Free
admission. Donations accepted.
