A production of Villa del Cine directed by Roman Chalbaud

Venezuela, mid of 19th century. Polarization between Liberals and Conservatives marked the political agenda. Colonial society inequities kept farmers and slaves under oligarchy’s yoke. Ezequiel Zamora, moved by deep freedom ideals, leads a battle trying to end with social inequities and to distribute lands fairly.

ZAMORA, FREE LANDS AND MEN, is a movie about a man that some tried to erase from history.
