(Venezuela, 2016) Dir. Miguel Delgado

Synopsis: During a political and economic transition at the end of the 19th century in Venezuela, the young Pedro Pérez Delgado (Maisanta), becomes the man of the house after the death of his father, Colonel Pedro Perez Perez. To help support his mother and his sister, Pedro starts working for Colonel Macías but the Colonel betrays his trust and dishonours the family name by daring to court his sister Petra while still married. Shaped by these bitter experiences, the white boy with yellow hair, whom many called “The American” embarks on a journey to become a leader of a revolution of the poor against the newly installed “progress” where Pedro Pérez Delgado would – along with his war cry ¡Maisanta! – become a legend.
