The Kotahi Ao film project proudly presents 'The Revolution Will Not be Televised' to raise funds for their own film due out mid-2005, with filming commencing this month. Bring a cushion and koha to 158 Cuba St Wednesday Feb 18th at 7pm.



From: 'Kotahi Ao' - the global grassroots film project

The Revolution will not be televised!

'Come and find out why the people of Venezuela so vehemently love their President Chavez and why the American government wants him ousted at any cost.' 'Local grassroots film production group, 'Kotahi Ao' will be acreening 'the revolution will not be televised at 7pm Wednesday 18th February at 158 Cuba Street. Bring a cushion and some koha (suggested $5).'

‘The Revolution will not be Televised’ is an inspirational, must-see film.

"The best television programme in the world this year" - International Jury

'Hugo Chavez, elected President of Venezuela in 1998, is a colouful, unpredictable folk hero, beloved by his nation's working class and a tough-as-nails, quixotic opponent to the power structure that would see him deposed.'

'Two independent filmmakers were inside the presidential palace on April 11, 2002, when he was forcibly removed from office. They were also present 48 hours later when, remarkably, he returned to power amid cheering aides.'

'On the last day of this month, three young Wellington women leave Aotearoa/New Zealand, to travel the world and document the beauty and the destruction of our planet and talk to people who are working to put things right.'

'They will be circumnavigating the globe, talking to well known experts like John Pilger, Vandana Shiva, David Suzuki, Stuart Hill and Lyn Margulis about globalisation, ecology and other issues. They will be travelling to deserts in Northern Africa, coastal reefs near Guatemala and rainforest reserves in Thailand, talking with locals about the real social and environmental changes. They will also be visiting spiritual leaders and positive projects like eco-villages, worker-run factories and free-schools.'

'"With only [18] days to go, we're desperately trying to scrape together the last few pieces of equipment we need and more funding so we can actually get the footage home - and eat!" says filmcrew member Emily Bailey. The filmcrew will return eight months later and in the meantime the rest of the team of around fifteen people will collate, write and edit all the material sent in.'

'The film is also open to submissions. More information is available on and regular updates on the filmcrew's progress will be posted soon.'
