The Columbus Film Council is pleased to present the Columbus premier of
The Assassination of Hugo Chavez. Over the years many things have been said about Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez but rarely has the true story of the man Pat Robertson called "a dangerous enemy" been told - that's what Greg Palast has done in his documentary short film The Assassination of Hugo Chavez.
Greg Palast is a New York Times bestselling author[ and a freelance journalist for the British Broadcasting Corporation as well as the British newspaper The Observer.

As seen through the eyes of grandmother and community organizer Gladys Bolivar, Venezuela Rising follows Gladys and her compatriots in 2004, five days before it is to be decided by popular referendum whether Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will continue in office or step down. The entire nation has been mobilized – will it be SI – yes he will be recalled, or NO – he will remain in office. Most in Venezuela feel that no less than the entire future of their country is at stake.

Issues of democracy and politics are addressed — what constitutes a free and fair election — and is that enough to ensure citizen participation? How are elections the ultimate measure of a thriving democracy? Venezuela Rising gets behind the headlines and into the neighborhoods of Caracas to find out how participatory democracy works on the ground.

The attached Marconi Parking Garage has ample parking for meetings and events. The covered parking garage and walkway are well lit, secured and handicapped accessible to the Arena Grand's facilities. And with a reduced garage rate, everyone can save. Parking starts at just $1 per car, up to 4 hours.
