    December - The Liberator (Libertador)

His military campaigns covered twice the territory of Alexander the Great. His army never conquered -- it liberated. The most expensive film ever produced in Latin America, The Liberator is a striking chronicle of his life and times. “The film is an enjoyable slice of narrative history about a man whose name in history is written beside Cromwell, Napoleon, and Washington, and is finally getting cinematic recognition worthy of his legacy.” -Ananda Dillon, Way Too Indie
