The 2016 Hispanic Film Series starts Friday, Jan. 29, with a screening of The Liberator at 7 p.m. in Room 103 Engineering Management Building. This is the second year in a row that the arts, languages, and philosophy department has received a grant to bring a series of Hispanic films to Missouri S&T. As part of the series, five films will be screened free of charge on Friday nights during the spring semester. All films are in Spanish with English subtitles.
The Liberator is a historical drama about the life of Simon Bolivar.
“Simon Bolivar is perhaps the best known among the four major figures who played a key role in liberating the Spanish colonies in America from the Spanish Empire, early in the 19th century,” says Dr. Jorge Porcel, associate professor of arts, languages, and philosophy and organizer of the series. “The movie documents Bolivar’s pursuit of a Panamerican nation, frustrated by power games, greed, self-serving interests and, ultimately, betrayal.”
