This movie was filmed by an Irish documentary team who were in the right place at exactly the right time.
They were making a documentary about Chavez when the US-inspired coup was mounted. For students of political conspiracies it is prime source material. The buildup to the coup is carefully recorded, as is the media distortion of the events surrounding it.
It leaves you in no doubt that the coup plotters used snipers to kill Chavez supporters (who were demonstrating peacefully): many of them died with clean head shots. When Chavez supporters fired back at the snipers, the opposition media edited the pictures to make it look as if the pro-Chavez faction were shooting at opposition protesters.
It clearly shows the coup's new Attorney General dissolving the representative government, firing the ombudsman, and metaphorically tearing up the constitution of Venezuela, all the while, claiming a people's mandate.
It also shows how the coup collapsed and Chavez returned to power. It's very moving - a brilliant piece of reportage.
See the movie and ask yourself if Bush could move around the US unprotected the way Chavez does?
He has a lot of courage. Watch this as an antidote to the propaganda.
