Bolivar: A Tropical Symphony | Chicago Reader

Bolivar: A Tropical Symphony

Diego Risquez, a Venezuelan painter and performance artist, has made four features in Super 8; this is his latest, a survey of Latin American history centered on the figure of Simon Bolivar, the greatest liberator of the 19th-century Spanish colonies. Bolivar is played by two actors—one who embodies the textbook myth of Bolivar as conqueror and ruler, one who plays Bolivar as a genuine revolutionary.
