Venezuela From Below: In Venezuela, a profound social transformation identified as the Bolivarian process has been underway since Hugo Chávez’s governmental takeover in 1998. It concerns a broad process of self organization. In the film the true actors in the social process are able to speak, the grassroots: Workers from the oil company PDVSA,
farmers from a newly founded cooperative, loan recipients and activists from Caracas’ disadvantaged districts, Indígena community members, workers from occupied factories. They see themselves as part of the process that is underway, but also problematize numerous points. The search for a social and economic model beyond neo-liberalism is no easy terrain; there are currently no successful, tested alternatives.
The protagonists in the Bolivarian process have, however, set upon a path from which there is no return.
