Now The People Have Awoken: Exploring Venezuela’s Revolution is a 55 minute documentary filmed during the 2006 Venezuelan presidential election. The film was released in 2007 by the directors, Ricardo Restrepo and Julia Capon.
The film features commentary on Venezuelan democracy, community councils, co-operatives, politics, amongst other elements of Venezuelan life, including how it relates to US imperialism and how US imperialism relates to Venezuelan social and political life and policy. The film debunks many lies spun by mainstream media outlets based in the US and elsewhere, and offers a balanced portrayal of Venezuela’s recent history. I learned a lot.
