Samenvatting

This article explains how the cinematic image of the Latin American Liberator, Simón Bolívar, re-imagined in 1942 by Mexican film director, Miguel Contreras Torres, may be observed from three different perspectives: one, an introspective way through the analysis of a reflexive Bolívar from the beginning of his marriage with María Teresa del Toro in Madrid, Spain; second, an extroverted image by observing the reciprocity between Bolívar, Manuela Sáenz, San Martín and the results of the battle of Ayacucho; and third, a decadent image of Bolívar during his exile in San Pedro Alejandrino, Santa Marta, Colombia. This article also includes a comparison between traditional iconography and original photographs from the personal archive of Mexican film director, Miguel Contreras Torres.
