The perfect documentary. Informative, uplifitng and inspirational. We think we know people, but through this doc we realise that we are looking through distorted or corrupt lenses which aren't always showing us the full story and sometimes not even the truth. Do you know Hugo Chavez ? Do you REALLY know Hugo Chavez ? Test yourself, pick up this doc and give it an open mind. You'll be pleasently surprised.

Interesting documentary showing a different perspective on latin american leaders than we get from mainstream media. I learned a bit, but I feel it lacked substance. Plus, you have to read subtitles quickly.

Very good film, for me it's just missing a bit more comparison (graphic data) between before and after changes were done in the exposed systems. Another good film to open the eyes of the blind people who still believe in the lies of a controled media. Thumbs up for Mr. Stone!
