ABOUT THE FILM:
Two Hundred years after Simón Bolívar’s liberation campaign in Colombia, Bicentenario retraces Bolívar’s journey across the Country, searching for his ghost still present in the contested territory. Creatively intersecting the traditions of landscape film, oral traditions, and political essay, Bicentenario cinematically reveals the collision of history and myth inscribed on the territory of what would become an inevitably failed state — the Great Colombia.
 
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:
Pablo Alvarez-Mesa is a Filmmaker and Cinematographer working mainly in non-fiction. His films have played and earned awards at international film festivals including Berlinale, Rotterdam, Camden IFF, Visions du Reel, and RIDM. Pablo is an affiliate member of the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling at Concordia University and a Berlinale Talents, Banff Centre for the Arts and Canadian Film Centre alumnus.
This event is supported by the Concordia Ethnography Lab’s Visual Methods Studio (VMS).
