Venezuelan Pavilion at Expo

The Venezuelan Pavilion tells us little about the country, despite the huge structure and the country's rich cultural and historical heritage.  Apart from an inner compound that amuses visitors over Venezuelan hamocks, the whole place was full of revolutionary slogans.  I saw Chinese visitors shaking their heads over posters and abstract art pieces about "Revolution", "Individual Decision On Revolution", "Global Revolution", "Fair Trade". "Global Revolutionary Friendship", "The Future - Global Revolution" and so on, in both Spanish and Chinese. There is an auditorium where a film was played. The film, or from what I understood during the 10 min I watched it, seemed to be about poor people and some kind of musical instruments, and some implication about the"purity" and honesty of these people.
