This film screening takes place at THE OLD BUS DEPOT, QUEEN STREET, COLCHESTER.


The biopic about the journey and written memoir of the 23-year-old Ernesto Guevara (Gael García Bernal), who would several years later become internationally known as the iconic Marxist guerrilla commander and revolutionary Che Guevara.

‘The film recounts the 1952 expedition, initially by motorcycle, across South America by Guevara and his friend Alberto Granado (Rodrigo de la Serna). As well as being a road movie, the film is a coming-of-age film; as the adventure, initially centred on youthful hedonism, unfolds, Guevara discovers himself transformed by his observations on the life of the impoverished indigenous peasantry. Through the characters they encounter on their continental trek, Guevara and Granado witness firsthand the injustices that the destitute face and are exposed to people and social classes they would have never encountered otherwise. To their surprise, the road presents to them both a genuine and captivating picture of Latin American identity.’ - Wikipedia
