The Revolution Will Not Be Televised: X-Ray of a Lie

Film producer and BBC-trained engineer Wolfgang Schalk studied frame by frame Kim Bartley's and Donnacha O'Brien's propaganda film "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised." "X-Ray of a Lie" is Schalk's definite deconstruction of a film that has wrongly been portrayed as the ultimate truth of the coup d'etat that took place on 11 April 2002, when Chavez was temporarily removed from power. By factually demonstrating edits that altered chronology of events, Schalk exposes Bartley's, O'Brien's and their producers' (BBC included) dishonesty in fabricating a story to dupe viewers worldwide.
