ANSWER Film Series - two new films about Venezuela
“Con los Pueblos de la Tierra” (With the Poor of the Earth) and “Voices of Venezuela”
Filmmaker Gloria La Riva, recently returned from the People's Summit in Mar del Plata, Argentina, will present the films and discuss the role of Venezuela's Bolivarian Revolution in the people's struggle in Latin America.
"Con los Pueblos de la Tierra" is an excellent documentary that gives the essential background into what is popularly known as the Bolivarian Revolution of Venezuela. Produced by noted Chilean journalist Marta Harnecker, this documentary relates the inspiring and fascinating history of Hugo Chávez's struggle to create a new Venezuela free of poverty, illiteracy and misery and the involvement of the Venezuelan people in their own liberation. Spanish with English subtitles, 56 minutes, 2004.
"Voices of Venezuela" is a 12-minute video of interviews with community people in the social projects, “Missions” of Venezuela. It is a moving series of vignettes produced by Gloria La Riva in early 2005.
