El Paredón (The Execution Wall) is a film I made in 2012 to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the execution of Victoriano Lorenzo, a Panamanian peasant hero. Victoriano Lorenzo was killed unjustly at the end of the Thousand Days' War, the bloody civil war that marks the beginning of the separation of Panama from Colombia after 83 years of union. It was premiered at the Festa del Salvino 2012 in Florence, Italy.
