Bicentenario

Pablo Álvarez-Mesa
Watch
Director Pablo Alvarez-Mesa retraces Simón Bolívar’s liberation campaign on the milestone anniversary of the military commander’s journey through Colombia. This clever travel essay traces the geographical nature of history, politics and social structures and shifts freely between exploration and poetic expression. The bloody political events of Colombia in 2021 lend this work a new resonance.

Pablo Alvarez-Mesa (b. 1980, Colombia) is a filmmaker and cinematographer working primarily in nonfiction. His short films have played at international film festivals including the Berlinale, Rotterdam, Camden, Hot Docs, Visions du Réel and the Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM).
