Alborada Films Presents:
Inside the Revolution: A Journey into the Heart of Venezuela
SCREENING (Followed by Q&A with the director Pablo Navarrete)
February 2009 marked 10 years since Hugo Chavez took office, following
a landslide election victory, and launched his revolution to bring
radical change to Venezuela. While wildly popular with many in his
country, Chavez's policies and his outspoken criticisms of the U.S.
government have made him powerful enemies, both at home and abroad.
Filmed in Caracas in November 2008, this feature-length documentary
takes a journey into the heart of Venezuela's revolution to listen to
the voices of the people driving the process forward.
Pablo Navarrete is an independent British-Chilean journalist,
researcher and filmmaker. He is the Latin America editor for ‘Red
Pepper’ magazine and is a PhD student at Bradford University in the
UK, researching development policy under the Chavez government in
Venezuela. He is the co-author of ‘The economic policy of the Latin
American left in government: Venezuela’, published by the
Transnational Institute in Holland (2007). He has published several
articles on contemporary Venezuelan and Latin American politics for
publications such as 'The New Statesman' in the UK and 'Counterpunch'
in the US.
