Trailer for Chávez: Inside the Coup

(Kim Bartley & Donnacha O’Briain, 2003, 74 min, Venezuela)

The two-day coup failed to topple Chávez, but the tumultuous event proved to be great dramatic material for two Irish filmmakers who happened to be making a documentary about Chávez as the coup erupted.
