In casual conversations with Presidents Hugo Chavez (Venezuela), Evo Morales (Bolivia), Lula da Silva (Brazil), Cristina Kirchner (Argentina), as well as her husband and ex-President Nestor Kirchner, Fernando Lugo (Paraguay), Rafael Correa (Ecuador), and Raul Castro (Cuba), Stone gains unprecedented access and sheds new light upon the exciting transformations in the region.

Quotes

[first lines]
Gretchen Carlson: Alright, something that I never knew was that - I knew there was some dictators around the world, but did you know that some of the dictators now apparently, allegedly, are drug addicts as well? That might explain a few things. Hugo Chavez, now admitting in his speech, that went widely undocumented by the way, that he chews cocoa every morning. And he also eats something called cocoa paste, which by the way is addictive. And he gets it from the dictator in Bolivia.

The entire movie is a fraud
12 May 2019 | by fernandotovaraSee all my reviews

I am from Venezuela and you this movie is the same attempt to paint a total disaster as utopian paradise. It is a blatant attempt to twist the truth and hide whats really happening. It is equivalent to what the Nazi propaganda machine spewed out in the 30s and what North Korea attempts to do in this day and age. Its political trash and should be catalogued as such.
