The Libertarian

Directed by Eugenio Gómez Borrero

Colombia | 14:54 minutes | 2019

A story about a ghost ship, a slave rebellion, and the eternal struggle for freedom.

In the midst of fireflies and mangroves, the musician Papámarimba narrates the legend of The Libertarian. A story about a ghost ship, a slave rebellion, and the eternal struggle for freedom. But his son Canchimalo no longer believes in these stories. He thinks they are just superstitions that keep his people in backwardness. A challenge that will bring him face-to-face with the spirits of his ancestors.
