Bolívar: el héroe (Bolívar: the Hero) is a Colombian animated film released on 25 December 2003 and based on the life of Simón Bolívar (a Latin American military and political leader who fought against Spanish colonial rule). Not a great deal is known about the film, and there are few online resources regarding it. Ho

wever, the film has become notorious on Latin American websites for its low quality, due to its lack of funding. Sources say the film performed decently at the box office.

A short trailer for the film.

The film tells the story of Bolívar using basic characters: a tyrannical one representing Spanish oppression, and "Amerigo," who represents the Latin Americans and their desire for freedom.

Running 75 minutes, the film was designed to appeal to younger audiences with a "cartoony" art style. It was produced entirely digitally over the course of two years. It was screened at numerous film festivals between 2004 and 2007 and, according to Wikipedia, still airs occasionally on Colombian and international television.

The director, Guillermo Rincón, has not made any further ventures in the film industry.
