Abstract

This article examines the role of the Venezuelan State as a film producer and its influence in the selection and cinematic treatment of predominant topics in documentaries and feature films financed by Villa del Cine (a State-owned production company). Most of these films pursue the (re)construction of the historical memory by drawing parallels between the Venezuelan War of Independence and the Bolivarian revolution. This study focuses on the aesthetic and ideological agenda of these cultural practices.
