Diary of Bucaramanga, Last Days of Simon Bolivar: Film Screening and Q&A with Film Director

September 4th, 2013
7:00 pm

Location
Freeman Auditorium
Newcomb Art Gallery

Film screening and Q&A with the director will be followed by a Latin American-themed reception with food and music. This event is free and open to the public.

Diary of Bucaramanga – Last Days of Simon Bolivar focuses on the heightened last two years of Venezuelan revolutionary, Simón Bolívar. The political leader was instrumental in the liberation of Latin America, earning him the title, “El Libertador”. According to the director, Carlos Fung, the film “reflects what happened to his dream of continental unity, what happened to the Great Colombia and how that dream disintegrated, by misunderstanding of certain sectors that opposed the political vision of the Liberator.” Diary of Bucaramanga recently won prizes for Best Art Direction and Best First Feature at Venezuela’s National Film Festival.

The screening is sponsored by the Consulate of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in New Orleans and Tulane’s Stone Center for Latin American Studies.
