Film: The Revolution Will Not be Televised with commentary by noted historian and author Michael Parenti Sun, Dec 21, 2003, 6:00 pm Berkeley Fellowship 1924 Cedar at Bonita Come see this amazing film if you missed it or come see it again! On April 11, 2002, Irish documentarians Kim Bartley and Donnacha O'Brian were in Venezuela with the intention of making a movie about the nation's left-leaning president, Hugo Chavez. However the filmmakers found themselves in the midst of a coup d'etat as the right-wing opposition overthrew the leader. Chavez was returned topower, but this film captures those frightening days in which a nation's ppolitical future was fought over using bullets and media manipulation. Learn what the White House thought about the coup in the world's fifth largest producer of oil (providing 14% of the US' petroleum). The event will include an update from the local Venezuelan Support Group and a talk by noted historian and author Michael Parenti. Sponsored by Social Justice Committe of Berkeley Unitarian Fellowship and Marin Interfaith Task Force on the Americas. Doors open 6pm for holiday gathering/ refreshments.
