REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED at Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive In

On April 12, 2002, the world awoke to the news that Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez had been removed from office and replaced by a new government. Chavez, the democratically elected president of Venezuela, beloved by his nation's poor and working class, makes a colorful unpredictable folk hero and a tough-as-nails, quixotic opponent to the power structure that would see him deposed.

Consider this a bug in your ear. Oh, and why does a tiny little nation on another continent matter to us? Because like Iraq, they're sitting on our oil! Throw your lawn chair, a warm blanket (it's expected to be clear and cold), and a picnic basket in the bike trailer and join us at the Big Yellow House. See you Friday...

Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In Presents

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

On April 12, 2002, the world awoke to the news that Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez had been removed from office and replaced by a new government. Chavez, the democratically elected president of Venezuela, beloved by his nation's poor and working class, makes a colorful unpredictable folk hero and a tough-as-nails, quixotic opponent to the power structure that would see him deposed.

Two independent documentary filmmakers were inside Venezuela and suddenly found themselves in the heart of a coup d'état and captured those frightening moments and days in which a nation's political future hung in the balance. They were also present 48 hours later when, remarkably, Chavez returned to power amid cheering crowds. Their film records what was probably history's shortest-lived coup d'état.

PLUS selected shorts, previews, yummy popcorn, good company, and an intermission.

8:00 pm Friday December 17th
Big Yellow House, 742 N. Branciforte Ave, Santa Cruz

BRING blankets, lawn chairs, friends, wine, & food to share for intermission. Donations are greatly appreciated and directly support the project and the Revolutionary Garden Society who sponsors Guerilla Drive-In. (We are currently saving to get a spare projector bulb.)

SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is exactly what it sounds like -- an outdoor movie theatre under the stars that springs up unexpectedly in the fields and industrial wastelands. Guerilla Drive-In is helping reclaim public space and transform our urban environment into the joyful playground it should be.

SUBURBAN WASTELAND LOCATION: S on Hwy 17 to Ocean St., L on Soquel Ave, L on Branciforte at Shoppers Corner, only house on your Right, 742 N. Branciforte, Big Yellow House. Come around back. Don't be shy!
