66th Annual Venice Film Festival

We attended the 66th Annual Venice Film Festival on the Venetian island, Lido, for the premier of Oliver Stone's documentary South of the Border. Stone spent time in Venezuela interviewing Hugo Chavez for this documentary, depicting how Chavez is a Socialist and not a dictator. Chavez walked the red carpet with Oliver Stone for the premier.

The documentary was quite interesting, detailing significant events since Chavez came onto the scene in 1998, including the coup to remove him from power. The documentary certainly paints a different picture of the happenings in South America.
