A biographical documentary on Hugo Chávez made in the United Stated portrays the Venezuelan ruler as a charismatic and buffoonish leader eager to become a myth, and brands his socialist polices as a failure after a decade in power.  

The producers of the TV program interviewed former government officials, Chávez associates and ordinary Venezuelans to chronicle Chávez's ascent to power. "The Hugo Chavez Show" will be aired in English and Spanish on Tuesday, November 25 in a program of the US public channel (PBS) but will be available online at www.pbs.org/frontline/hugochavez beginning on Wednesday, November 19.

The documentary takes as its theme the unique weekly show "Aló Presidente" (Hello, President), hosted by Chávez.  

"The President's Sunday show becomes not only a place where decisions are made but a place where decision-making is exhibited, showing how the President makes the good decisions while the ministers make mistakes. It is a mechanism, a device to keep the President from bad decision making. Those who always appear guilty of the mistakes are the ministers who are judged by the president in front of 15 million viewers," says Professor Colette Capriles, of the Simón Bolívar University.
