Filiberto is a feature-length bio-pic documentary about FILIBERTO OJEDA RÍOS, a professional musician who abandons his trumpet and his family to live a clandestine life of armed revolutionary. OJEDA RÍOS becomes a strategic leader of groups notorious for their violent and dramatic acts to advance Puerto Rican independence. Along the way, he turned into a mythical figure having different names for each circle of persons he interacted with. Filiberto draws upon personal interviews as well as electronic wire-taps and photographic surveillance recordings of his underground life- to showcase counterpoint portrayals of the role of the FBI in their hunt for OJEDA RÍOS that ended in his controversial bloody death.
