Online Video: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

This behind the scenes documentary focuses on the media’s role in the 2002 coup against Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Two independent filmmakers were inside the presidential palace on April 11, 2002, when Hugo Chavez was forcibly removed from office. They were also present 48 hours later when, remarkably, he returned to power amid cheering aides. Their film records what was probably history’s shortest-lived coup d’état.
