SUNDAY SCREENING: ‘The War On Democracy’

21st Century Wire says…

This is the latest installment of our new weekly SUNDAY SCREENING feature, where our editorial team curates a documentary film for our 21WIRE audience.

‘The War on Democracy’ is one of award-winning Australian filmmaker John Pilger’s most intimate film creations. Pilger takes an inside look at the Hugo Chavez epoch in Venezuela, the CIA coup and fascist takeover in Chile, as well as the American derailment of El Salvador, Guatemala and Bolivia. Pilger also traces the modern origins of the ‘death squad’. The film delicately chronicles the issues facing the people of South America before, during and after the brutal CIA years.
