Synopsis

Filmmakers Kim Bartley and Donnacha Ó Briain were given direct access to Chávez to make a fly-on-the-wall biography of the Venezuelan president. After 7 months filming in the country with Chávez and his staff, the coup unfolded on 11 April. Bartley and Ó Briain captured footage of protesters and the erupting violence in the capital Caracas as well as the political upheavals inside Miraflores, the presidential palace.
