Event Description
A documentary following both candidates in the 2006 Venezuelan presidential elections as they raced toward the December 3rd elections. The film offers its audience a snapshot portrait of a Venezuelan society at a crossroads; a re-elected president, challenged by a mounting opposition; a valuable starting block for any debate on current Venezuelan politics. The documentary team journeyed to six different regions of Venezuela, shooting everywhere from the notorious barrios of Caracas to the oil-rich Lake Maracaibo, from a city of five million to an Amazonian pueblo of twenty-three, criss-crossing the country in everything from Chavista motocicletas to dug-out canoes and a private jet. Not Rated. 73 minutes.
