Review
Winner of the 2003 Grierson Awards for Best International Documentary and Best Newcomer. "When a coup was launched in April 2002 against Hugo Chavez, the elected President of Venezuela, some young Irish filmmakers were lucky enough to be on hand to witness the events. They were actually inside the Presidential Palace - a filmmakers' dream - when the soldiers came to take Chavez away. But they were also there 48 hours later when the same soldiers switched sides reinstalling the president. The result is a brilliant piece of journalism. The media, who ought to be merely reporting the conflict splitting the country down the middle, are in fact adjuncts of the coup-makers." (Nick Fraser, Storyville Series Editor)
