CORNEJO CANCINO, Tomás. Manuel Rodríguez y el húsar en el cine: un discurso histórico sin historiadores. Universum [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.2, pp.45-58. ISSN 0718-2376.

Manuel Rodríguez was a key figure during the first years of Chilean cinema. Besides the well-known El húsar de la muerte (1925), two other films about Rodríguez’s intervention during the independence war were shot in 1910 and 1920. The article explores how the Chilean society of the time accorded these movies to have historical value, centering it attention on objects and decoration put on the screen. The second part of the article analyses the same motion picture as a "filmic vision of history", with a scope far beyond the traditional historiographical discourse. El húsar de la muerte explains the independence struggle as a cruel war between the poor and the riches, taking to the big screen an inquiry about a relevant chapter and character of our history that received social acceptance. The use of filmic resources made by director Pedro Sienna are relevant, as they were related with cultural production that characterizes the first decades of cinema, explaining its relationship with others discourses focused on the ‘guerrillero’ leader.

Palabras clave : Manuel Rodríguez; silent film; El húsar de la muerte; historical cinema.
