BAFTA-winning journalist John Pilger examines the U.S. Government’s manipulation of Latin American politics.

Talking exclusively to American government officials, including agents who reveal for the first time on film how the CIA ran it’s operations in Latin America in the 80’s, the film shows how serial U.S. intervention, overt and covert, has toppled a series of legitimate governments in the Latin American region since the 1950s.

Pilger unearths the real story behind the attempted overthrow of Venezuela’s President Hugo Chávez in 2002 and how the people of the barrios of Caracas rose up to force his return to power.

The War On Democracy suggests that, far from bringing democracy to the world as it claims, the U.S. prefers Latin American countries to be led by people it approves first.
