PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT ON 19TH CENTURY HISTORICAL ADVENTURE TV SERIES LIBERTAD WHICH ARRIVES TO MOVISTAR THIS SPRING

  LIBERTAD EPIC TV SERIES 
COMING FROM SPAIN IN MARCH
Here's the latest period set project coming to us from Spain: five episode historical series LIBERTAD will arrive to Spanish streamer Movistar this

spring, March 26th set in the 19th century Spain. Earlier this winter Movistar scored success with another period set series - time spanning saga Tell Me Who I Am, and now they will try their luck with this series which features mostly outdoor scenes and had finished production exactly a week before the national lockdown was proclaimed in Spain last March. At the same time, while the new series is airing over at Movistar, a two hour movie will be released in cinemas ahead of Easter so the audience can pick which format to watch. They are hoping the release will give a boost to Spanish flagging box office.
 THE STORY OF LIBERTAD
A woman nicknamed La Llanera (played by Spanish singer Bebe) is released in 1807, in the wake of the French revolution (which inspired Spain to proclaim Spain a constitutional monarchy in 1812), from prison after 17 years

Her son Juan (Jason Fernandez) was born in the cell and does not know his father, the famous bandit Lagartijo (Xabier Deive). Mother and son will try to live the freedom that has been denied to them for so many years while they are persecuted by

gangs of bandits and gunmen of the Governor. Lagartijo, Aceituno (Isak Ferriz) and the Governor (Luis Callejo) are looking for La Llanera, but they are also looking for each other. In 19th century Spain there is no room for everyone, much less for traitors.

    1. My fave was probably Cathedral of the Sea, but Spanish series are very difficult to find on the net for some reason.

  6. Spanish flagging box office. Aren't most box offices flagging these days? Well, maybe not Russia since they seem to have massive hits lately, but the rest? Almost dead in the water.

  7. After living in confinement for 17 years with death lingering overhead annually, how do you just go back to living freely? I can't even imagine how hard that must be. Did they not let the son free or he stayed in prison his whole youth?

    1. Don't know about the son, he was probably there to greet her as he rides very well which he wouldn't have learned if he was in the prison the whole time too. I've recently watched a clip with a black man who left the prison after half a century after serving the sentence for robbery as a teen and he was shocked by all the big skyscrapers which did not exist when he went in half a century ago. Other released convicts have their groups through which they greet, help and take care of eachother in accepting the new free life after the release.

    2. I watch this documentary like series from time to time called "Behind Bars". Many prisoners end up back in prison after a short time simply because they can't adjust to a different way of life. Some even express feelings of fear to live the jail.

    3. Yes, that happens even to people in freedom who live long time without going out. My mom has it, and as someone who works at home I can say that I have a certain mild fear from hanging out myself, like I'd rather stay at home than go for a coffee or something. It's nothing serious, but nothing good either.
