To commemorate 202 years since our declaration of independence, the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the U.S. will present the film “Miranda,” directed by Diego Rísquez, on Thursday, April 19, at 6:30 pm at the Bolivarian Hall in Washington, DC. The film will be presented in Spanish with English subtitles.
The film depicts the amazing life of a man whom biographers have compared to Don Juan and Don Quixote: Generalissimo Francisco de Miranda.
A work of historical fiction, the film chronicles the life of Francisco de Miranda beginning with his decision to embark for Spain in 1771 to serve in the Royal Army. The Venezuelan hero is characterized by his constant role in great historical moments and the most passionate love stories. Miranda was the only man who fought in the three most important revolutions of his time: American, French and Latin American. Miranda was undoubtedly the most universal Venezuelan of his day, helping design his country’s flag and write its first constitution. He was appointed Generalissimo, but in his later years, faced intense treachery.
