Chavez: Inside the Coup
Summary: "On April 11, 2003 the world awoke to the news that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez had been removed [from office]. 12 months ago two Irish documentary makers travelled to Venezuela to make a film about this charismatic and unorthodox leader. They got his permission to have full access to film that was to become a close up and personal profile. It turned out to be something completely different. A thrilling inside [look] into Chavez, charting the last seven months in the [runup] to the coup and his dramatic return to power some 48 hours later."--2003 Peabody Awards entry form.
