La Koronela

(Documental) The head of the KGB for all South America lived in Uruguay between 1948 and 1967. Her name of war was
Ivona África. He was Spanish, but declared "my homeland was the Soviet Union". He parachuted into
Ukraine in World War II, was a radiocommunication specialist and assisted in the assassination of Leon
In France he met Felisberto Hernández the great writer of Uruguayan fantastic literature. They moved to
Uruguay, got married, and got Uruguayan citizenship and lived together less than two years.
She was a quiet person, she did not talk about politics and she liked children. His friends, young intellectuals
or Uruguayan politicians never knew that he worked for the KGB. Felisberto Hernández, declared anticommunist,
did not know either.
She died in Moscow on March 8, 1988, when the Soviet Union was about to disintegrate. For his services he
received the Order of Lenin. The tombstone that keeps its remains remembers it like "Colonel".
This documentary seeks to reconstruct the story of Maria Luisa from the interviews recovering the naive look
of her friends from Uruguay, the imaginary of Felisberto Hernández and documents that not long ago have
come to light.
