Manuela Sáenz: The passion of Bolívar


Review:

Manuela Sáenz loved Simón Bolívar, one of the greatest heroes of Latin America, liberator of several nations. Her impassioned love for him, the crucial role she plays in his life and her important contribution to history have been unfairly ignored. She was feared because of her bravery, intelligence and provocation. As we will watch on this documentary, fighting the established conventions at that time she won the heart of Bolívar, shared his battles and dreams and remained at his side until the end of his life.
