The Revolution Will Not be Televised is a powerful and dramatic film about the charismatic and controversial Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez. It charts the run-up to the dramatic attempt to overthrow him in April 2002 and provides an eye-witness account of the coup d'etat and the extraordinary return to power of Chavez some 48 hours later. Unique footage of Chavez, icon of the Left and thorn in the side of the US administration, is assembled in this electrifying documentary.
