    Original lang: Spanish

    In 1948, Colombian Liberal leader Jorge Eliécer Gaitán was mysteriously assassinated. In Roa, filmmaker Baiz portrays Juan Roa Sierra (Mauricio Puente), the suspected assassin, as a family man who does everything he can to feed his family. Looking up to Gaitán (Santiago Rodriguez), Roa contacts him for a chance at employment, but Gaitán is haughty and distant, treating him with disdain. This rebuff disappoints but also motivates Roa to take action. Nominated for the Cine Latino Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Roa is an elegant period piece 'whodunit' that explores the complex psychological characters of both the leader and the one who wishes to follow.
