"Puedo Hablar"/May I Speak?

Sol Productions in Venezuela, Inc.
Producer/Co-Director Christopher Moore

Tuesday, March 25, 2008
7:00 p.m., Gasson Hall 100
Boston College Campus Map

"A compelling, 'must-see' documentary for everyone who wants to know what is happening in Venezuela right now."
—Jose Torrealba, Director, Providence Latin American Film Festival

"Puedo Hablar? is by far the best film I have seen on the Chavez era in Venezuela… Far too often, documentary filmmakers and the mainstream media portray the extremes in contemporary Venezuela, and such work becomes slanted towards hardcore Chavistas or hardcore opposition. Moore’s film demonstrates that Venezuelan reality is not so black and white, but much more complex... As far as I know, no other documentary film tackles these issues as well as Moore’s film."
—Kim Morse, Washburn University

"This movie will generate lively discussions in the classroom... It's a rare insight into Venezuela's political polarization."
—Javier Corrales, Amherst College
