Time: 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Location: Digital Arts Entertainment Lab (DAEL),Audience Response Theater
The Departments' of Communication and Political Science at Georgia State University present a screening of the 2006 Documentary“¿Puedo Hablar?”. The documentary focuses on Hugo Chavez, his supporters, and his detractors during the December 2006 elections. The team at Sol Productions in Venezuela Inc. spent just under three months following both candidates as they raced towards the December 3rd elections. The film offers its audience a snapshot portrait of a Venezuelan society at a crossroads; a re-elected president, challenged by a reformed and mounting opposition; a valuable starting block for any debate on current Venezuelan politics. The production team of four journeyed to six different regions of Venezuela, shooting everywhere from the notorious barrios of Caracas to the oil-rich Lake Maracaibo, from a city of five million to an Amazonian pueblo of twenty-three, crisscrossing the country in everything from Chavista motocicletas to dug-out canoes and a private jet.
The film will be introduced by producer Chris Moore and will conclude with a post-film discussion with Chris Moore and Dr. Jennifer McCoy, Professor of Political Science, Georgia State University.
The movie is presented in Spanish with English Subtitles.
