This documentary is a real eye opener. Even if you're not into "Socialism", this movie really gets into how the United States likes to interfere with other countries in order get its "way" in certain regions of the world.
In Venezuela the United States was going to try to get a better deal on oil and gas by installing a government more favorable than the Chavez administration. Instead of launching a full scale war (which they couldn't because they couldn't make up a weapons of mass destruction story for Venezuela), they instead tried to paint a picture of elected President Hugo Chavez as a bad character in hopes of starting a military coup to oust him from power.
This video goes on to discuss other South American countries and interviews many elected leaders and gets their opinion on US foreign policy. The results are surprising!
South of the Border is a 2009 documentary film directed by the great Oliver Stone. Oliver Stone said that he hopes this Doc brings a greater understanding of Hugo Chavez.
