Venezuela Rising
An exciting new film about participatory democracy

Presented by producer and filmmaker Catherine Murphy in person

Who is this man Hugo Chávez and what is this Bolivarian revolution about which so much is heard? Venezuela Rising follows grandmother and community organizer Gladys Bolivar and her compatriots five days before it is to be decided by popular referendum whether Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez will continue in office or step down. The entire nation has been mobilized – will it be , yes he will be recalled, or NO, he will remain in office? Most in Venezuela feel that no less than the entire future of their country is at stake.

The film addresses issues of democracy and politics – what constitutes a free and fair election, and is that enough to ensure citizen participation? Are elections the ultimate measure of a thriving democracy? Venezuela Rising gets behind the headlines and into the neighborhoods of Caracas to find out how Venezuela’s participatory democracy works on the ground.
