Libertador / The Liberator

Libertador / The Liberator is an impressively scaled chronicle of the life and times of Simon Bolivar, heroe of South American anti-colonialist struggles in the early 19th century. This latest collaboration between “Carlos” star Edgar Ramirez and Venezuelan director Alberto Arvelo (following “Cyrano Fernandez”) is a respectable, sprawling endeavour that covers nearly three decades of tumultuous events says Variety Magazine.

The film journeys through the impassioned struggle of Simon Bolivar’s (Edgar Ramirez) fight for independence in Latin America from Spain and his vision of a united South American nation. With music composed by Gustavo Dudamel,  Libertador was one of the two Latin American films shortlisted for the 2014 Oscars.
