Videos for Peace presents The War on Democracy (94 min.)
The War on Democracy demonstrates the brutal reality of America’s notion of “spreading democracy.” America is actually conducting a war on democracy, and true popular democracy is now more likely to be found among the poorest of Latin America. Through interviews with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and US government officials who ran the CIA’s war in Latin America in the 1980s, award-winning filmmaker John Pilger reveals how what’s happened in Latin America is a metaphor for how the rest of the world is being “ordered.” This film is a hopeful film, however. It sees the world not through the eyes of the powerful, but through the hopes and dreams and extraordinary actions of ordinary people. It’s a tribute to Pilger’s first cinematic release that you’ll come away feeling angry, inspired, informed and thoroughly entertained.
