In the movie The Liberator, the story of a people’s struggle for independence is brought to life.
Édgar Ramírez (Carlos) plays South American hero, Simón Bolivar.
Simon Bolívar 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.
Featuring conductor Gustavo Dudamel’s first ever original musical compositions for the screen, the movie The Liberator, which cost $50 million to make, (yet made most of its money at the movie box office in Latin American countries) brings to the life story of one of Latin America’s most vicious and violent men.
Simón José Antonio de la Santísima Trinidad Bolívar y Palacios Ponte y Blanco (July 24, 1783 – December 17, 1830), commonly known as Simón Bolívar, played a key role in Latin America’s successful struggle for independence from the Spanish Empire, and is today considered one of the most influential politicians in the history of the Americas.
