FROM THIS EPISODE

Director Alberto Arvelo had no problem convincing his long-time friend and LA Philharmonic conductor Gustavo Dudamel to sign on as a musical advisor for his new movie The Liberator, which tells the story of iconic Latin American leader Simón Bolívar. Dudamel got so excited about the project, before he knew it, he found himself composing the film’s entire score. Both men tell Kim Masters they grew up in Venezuela hearing stories about Bolívar, but it wasn’t easy to bring the life of “El Libertador” to the big screen.

Édgar Ramírez plays Latin American leader Simón Bolívar

Simón Bolívar is one of the most famous figures in Latin American history. A was a key leader in the struggle for independence from Spain in the early 19th century, he envisioned a united Latin America, with civil rights for people of all races and social classes. Bolívar was known as “El Libertador,” -- The Liberator--which is also the name of a new movie by Venezuelan filmmaker Alberto Arvelo.

Arvelo tells Kim Masters he has long wanted to do a film about Bolívar, and when it came to the movie’s music, he turned to his friend and fellow Venezuelan Gustavo Dudamel, the charismatic Los Angeles Philharmonic conductor.

Dudamel says he immediately agreed to serve as an musical advisor for the biopic, but as he started to read the script, he found himself inspired, and ending up composing the film’s entire score. Because of his busy and travel-filled schedule, Dudamel would compose whenever he had a spare moment, including during the intermissions of concerts he was conducting.
