Diary of Bucaramanga – Last Days of Simon Bolívar

English subtitles

Year: 2013


It takes place in 1828 amid the conflicts surrounding the consolidation of independence in South America. Bolívar, accompanied by his political advisers, is in the Colombian city of Bucaramanga awaiting news of developments at the Ocaña Convention, which is expected to generate a constitution for Colombia. During those dramatic days marked by intrigue and treachery at the hands of General Francisco de Paula Santander, the future of Gran Colombia is decided as Bolívar recalls key moments in his life. The film is based on a 19th century novel by Luís Perú de Lacroix, a French general who fought in the army of Napoleon I and then joined Bolívar’s army in 1823. Diary of Bucaramanga recently won prizes for Best Art Direction and Best First Feature at Venezuela's National Film Festival.
