The Liberator (El Liberator)
Alberto Arvelo, Venezuela/Spain, 2013, Spanish/EST, 119 mins.
Simon Bolivar fought over 100 battles against the Spanish Empire in South America. He rode over 70,000 miles on horseback. His military campaigns covered twice the territory of Alexander the Great. His army never conquered -- it liberated
THE LIBERATOR journeys through the impassioned struggle of revolutionary leader Simón Bolívars (Édgar Ramírez), to fight for independence in Latin America from Spain and his vision is of a united South American nation. In this groundbreaking endeavour, Bolívar unites different races, social classes, and nations to defeat the Spanish Empire and create a free and equal Latin America.Selected as the Venezuelan entry for best foreign language film
