Divided into seven sections, Dominican filmmaker Nino Martínez Sosa's powerful feature debut vividly explores the legend of Olivorio "Papá Liborio" Mateo, a farmer who disappeared from his village in 1908, only to be resurrected as a figure of spiritual healing and political rebellion whose prophecies and reputed powers made him an almost messianic figure in the eyes of his ever-expanding group of dedicated followers. Ultimately focusing on Liborio's role in the fight for independence from occupying U.S. forces in 1916, Sosa weaves a tapestry of multiple perspectives, unearthing an underexplored part of Dominican culture and identity from collective memory and shared myth. Official Selection, 2021 Rotterdam, Göteborg and New Directors/New Films film festivals. DIR/SCR/PROD Nino Martínez Sosa; SCR Pablo Arellano; PROD Fernando Santos Diaz, Maite Rivera Carbonell.
