Viva Venezuela film screening, London premiére - 25 October 2013

On Friday 25 October 160 people packed into Bolivar Hall, the cultural venue of the Venezuelan Embassy, for the London premiere of Viva Venezuela - Fighting for Socialism, a new film produced by the Revolutionary communist Group.

Filmed during the RCG’s delegation to Venezuela during the October 2012 presidential elections, Viva Venezuela tells the story of the struggle to build socialism in Venezuela through interviews with Venezuelans at the grassroots level.

Highlights of the film include:

The screening was preceded by introductions from the venezuelan Charge d’affaires for the UK, Alvaro Sanchez and Counsellor Jorge Luis Garcia representing the Cuban Embassy, both of whom emphasised the importance of showing solidarity with the process underway in Venezuela, which is the frontline in the battle for socialism in the world today.

The film is an important contribution to promoting an understanding of the revolutionary movement in Venezuela, especially in the English speaking world. RCG screenings have already taken place in Manchester, Dundee, Glasgow and Newcastle. Anyone wishing to organise a screening is welcome to contact us to request a copy.

The film will be freely available on from 1 November, help us to spread the word by sharing the link.
