From divisive Tunisian politics and radical Cuban media to Colombian national narratives, this assemblage of short films grapples with our collective notions of history, as well as the ever-permeating nature of social and political change.

Two hundred years after Simón Bolívar’s liberation journey across Colombia, Bicentenario reflects on the Liberator’s spirit and legacy, kept alive through social rituals of remembrance and mired by political mysticism, doctrine and a curse that has fixed itself in the collective imagination of an entire continent. Summoning Bolívar’s spirit to the exact sites that witnessed the battles, it is this curse that Bicentenario seeks to invoke and, perhaps, exorcise.
