The San Francisco program on Monday will include a panel discussion with the filmmakers -- artist Oliver Ressler and political analyst Dario Azzellini -- along with Camila Piñeiro Harnecker and curator Chris Gilbert.

The Labor Video Project and Laborfest ( will be screening "Venezuela From Below," a film by Oliver Ressler and Dario Azzellini. In this film, the true actors in the social process are able to speak: workers from the oil company PDVSA, farmers from a newly founded cooperative in Aragua, loan recipients from the 23 de Enero barrio in Caracas, indigenous community members from the Orinoco river valley, and others. These are the people of the grassroots and they speak about what they did and what they are doing, how they feel about the Bolivarian process, and about their expectations and ideas in the search for a social and economic model beyond neo-liberalism. Following the screening, panelists will engage in discussion with the audience and each other about this film and Azzelini and Ressler's new video project about the onging movement toward worker-controlled enterprises in Venezuela.

For information on the screenings please call (415) 282-1908 or email
