In the Shadow of the Revolution, an independent U.S.-Venezuelan 
collaboration by writer-directors J. Arturo Albarrán and Clifton Ross, 
gives voice to much-needed alternative perspectives on the country's 
Bolivarian Revolution. Heavily disseminated Bolivarian propaganda 
presents a narrative of a popular, left-wing government that has brought 
great benefits to the population in the face of attacks from a 
right-wing, "fascist" opposition. Through interviews with social 
movement activists, journalists, and academics, the film provides a 
counternarrative that helps explain the current rebellion against a 
corrupt, inefficient authoritarian government that has created a 
catastrophe in Venezuela that has brought it to the brink of civil war.
