The War on Democracy is both a feature documentary and a panoramic feature film; the images are vivid and moving, from high in the Bolivian Andes to the 'invisible' shanties of the great cities that grew in the wake of the Conquistadores. The archivist for The War on Democracy is Carl Deal, who was Michael Moore's archivist on 'Fahrenheit 911' and 'Bowling for Columbine'. (John Pilger’s 2003 film, Breaking the Silence: Truth and Lies in the War on Terror was the inspiration for ‘Fahreinheit 9/11’).

In his second inauguration address, President Bush pledged to “bring democracy to the world”. In a speech lasting 23 minutes, he mentioned the words ‘democracy’ and ‘liberty’ 21 times. Most of the world, it is fair to say, will have recoiled, many in fear...

Bush’s speech was significant because it finally emptied noble concepts like ‘democracy’ of their true meaning – government, for, by and of the people. Never before have people in the west shown such disenchantment with the democracy they vote for and the version they get. Never before has most of humanity registered such alarm at the ambitions of a great power.

The War on Democracy demonstrates the brutal reality of the America’s notion of 'spreading democracy'; that, in fact, America is actually conducting a war on democracy, and that true popular democracy is now more likely to be found among the poorest in Latin America whose grassroots movements are often ignored in the West.

John Pilger conducts an exclusive interview 'on the road' with President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. Pilger also goes to the United States and in some remarkable interviews, speaks exclusively to US government officials who reveal for the first time on film how CIA ran its war in Latin America in the 1980s. This tells us more about US policy than all the statements and postures of recent times; it also reveals how what’s happened in Latin America is a metaphor for how the rest of the world is being 'ordered' with the Middle East as its epicentre.

The War on Democracy, above all, is a hopeful film, for it sees the world not through the eyes of the powerful, but through the hopes and dreams and extraordinary actions of ordinary people. Although set mostly in Latin America, it is a metaphor for all the world in 2007.

The 'message' of John Pilger’s latest film is a constant theme in all his work: that great, rapacious power is far from invincible and that people power is enduring. Few films have been as timely as The War on Democracy.
