DVD: "Venezuela from Below"

A terrific 67 minute film by Dario Azzellini and Oliver Ressler. In Venezuela, a profound social transformation identified as the Bolivarian process has been underway since Hugo Chávez's government came to power in 1998. It concerns a broad process of self organization, from which has developed a progressive constitution, a labor law, new educational possibilities, and a number of further reforms for the impoverished majority of the population of what is potentially a wealthy state. The government's politics, which take an open stance against neo-liberalism, have experienced vehement rejection from Venezuela's major private industries and from the U.S., expressed in two attempted coups and boycotts. Nonetheless, Chávez and his government enjoy the trust of the majority of the population. The society is heavily politicized; many people who had never before thought of what they wanted to change are now a part of a profound transformation taking place in the country.

In the film "Venezuela from Below," the true actors in the social process are able to speak: the grassroots. After an introduction by philosopher Carlos Lazo, workers from the oil company PDVSA in Puerto La Cruz report how in 2002/2003 they protected the refinery from breaking down during the oil sabotage, which was pawned off as a strike, and how they were able to reinstate oil production. Several farmers from a newly founded cooperative in Aragua report on their process of self organization, on the literacy campaign, and how things should continue. A women's bank project in Miranda and several loan recipients from Caracas' disadvantaged district, 23 de Enero, present their projects. Indígena community members near the Orinoco river in Bolívar speak about how their demands and struggles are reflected in the constitution and what has changed for them. Workers from the occupied National Valve Company in Los Teques and the paper production company Venepal in Carabobo - which was occupied by 350 workers after the owners drove it to bankruptcy, and which now, after a partial agreement, is running production again - speak about corrupt unions, labor control, and their struggles. Protagonists in the revolutionary movement Tupamaro, the cultural foundation Simón Bolívar, the leftist website www.23.net, and the Bolivarian Circle Abrebrecha from 23 de Enero report on their work and what has changed for them through the social revolutions.

They are the people of the grassroots and they speak about what they did and what they are doing, how they feel about the Bolivarian process, about their expectations and ideas. 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.

DVD: "The Old Man and Jesus: Prophets of Rebellion"

"The Old Man and Jesus: Prophets of Rebellion" is a new documentary film by by Venezuelan film maker Marcelo Andrade (of the Calle y Media collective), whose "Venezuela Bolivariana" has opened the eyes of thousands of people to the reality and importance of the Venezuelan Revolution. This 70 minute film offers a unique perspective on the Bolivarian Revolutionary process: it follows the lives of two men who live on the streets of Caracas in the middle of the bosses' oil industry lockout in late 2002. The wisdom of the Old Man and the explosive passion of Jesus give a direct account of the commitment to liberation that grows from the Venezuelan people. This film is a documentary-prophecy of the rebellion that minute-to-minute is being silently planned beneath the bridges and sewers of a world that sooner or later will rise for justice.

DVDs bought at the solidarity price will help fund the Calle y Media collective, an integral community production project in La Vega, a barrio of Caracas, that is attempting to create an autonomous community through means of cooperatives and workshops. The group is currently expanding their capacity, starting with video theater, artesano transport, and urban agriculture. Available for a $10 regular donation, $20 solidarity donation. We also have other Venezuela DVDs available. Please contact us for more info.

DVD: "With the Poor of the Earth"

"With the Poor of the World" is a documentary film on Venezuela by the Center for Research into Latin American Popular Memory (MEPLA). This 57 minute film graphically shows 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 its beginnings in the 1980s to first anniversary of the April 2002 coup against the democratically elected government of Hugo Chavez Frias. 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.

Organizing a public showing of this film is the perfect way to form a Hands Off Venezuela solidarity committee in your area. Available for a $10 regular donation, $20 solidarity donation.
