Movie Info

Director Jorge Ali Triana attacks political corruption and historical accuracy in entertainment in his satirical 2002 film Bolivar Is Me. Actor Santiago Miranda (Robinson Diaz) is cast in a Latin American television miniseries chronicling the legendary revolutionary Simon Bolivar's life. The hyper-sensitive actor -- whose mental well-being was already questionable -- snaps when forced to perform a revisionist version of Santiago's death. As the actor angrily leaves the set, he also takes leave of his senses and believes himself to actually be Bolivar. Furthermore, he assumes Bolivar's mission to unite Latin America -- which shocks his producers and provides a rather unexpected opportunity for the local political leaders. Bolivar Is Me was viewed at the 2002 Los Angeles Latino Film Festival.

Audience Reviews for Bolivar Soy Yo (Bolivar Is Me)

½

A satire that just keeps getting better as it goes along. Triana finds every way possible to further blur the line between the actor and the revolutionary. Humor abounds, yet there is something fairly meaningful to take away from this film that fuses several themes, time periods, and dilemmas into a 90 minute joyride.
