"Che Guevara is more popular now, more than 30 years after his death, than when he was alive." -NY Times

Ernesto "Che" Guevara de la Serna represents one of the most enduring images of a political leader. His legendary character has been an inspiration for millions, yet many condemn him-sometimes bitterly. For all, he is a subject of controversy and passion.

This fascinating film examines the myth of the "most idolized revolutionary of the 20th century" (New York Times), and contains:

  • His voyages of discovery through Latin America
  • The meeting with Fidel Castro, when an instantaneous friendship was born
  • His travels around the world as Cuba's ambassador, sent by Castro to meet Krushchev, Nasser, Nehru, Tito, Mao...
  • His days as victorious leader of guerrilla warfare and a cold-blooded revolutionary
  • His various disguises worthy of a Hollywood thriller
  • The disastrous episode in the Congo
  • Film footage of his tragic end in Bolivia at the age of 39

Special Bonus Feature:

In the documentary Tracing Che, a Canadian film director goes in search of the man behind the myth, re-creating the legendary road trip through South America on an old Norton motorcycle that Che documented in The Motorcycle Diaries. On the way, he encounters many of Che's family and friends-including the friend who took the trip with him-who shed light on the truth behind this icon of the 20th century. This is a film that discovers humanity, passion, and the free spirit of a young 22 year old whose eyes were open on a relentless road trip.
