This Friday, 24 September, Hands Off Venezuela will be screening two short films in wake of the elections in Venezuela on 26 September, 2010.
The films to be shown are: ‘The Empire Strikes Back,’ illustrating the media’s image manipulation of Hugo Chavez and ‘Call For Solidarity,’ where Venezuelan people express the need for international solidarity within their revolution.
The event is part of ‘Movimientos’ at Passing Clouds and following the films will be ‘Haga que pase’: ‘Make it happen!’ a collection of short documentaries, music videos and images about the Afro-descendant communities of Villa Rica, Colombia.
