About Hugo Chavez and the gains of the Bolivarian Revolution

"With the Poor of the Earth" documents the contradiction between the 80 percent of Venezuelans who live in poverty and the vast potential wealth of that country. The ongoing revolutionary process is examined from the 1980s to the first anniversary of the April 2002 coup against the democratically-elected Hugo Chavez. The role of the U.S. government and the media is also highlighted. Through interviews, music, and footage from across the country, the profound social and economic changes taking place in Venezuela come to life, with emphasis on the participation of Venezuela's millions of poor in the revolutionary process.
