Che Guevara As You Have Never Seen Him Before

Synopsis
October 9th 1967. La Higuera, Bolivia. Shots ring out and a man dies. A man, but not the ideals and principles he stood for. The execution ensured that Ernesto "Che" Guevara de la Serna became, and remains, one of the most popular icons of socialist revolutionary principles throughout the world. This documentary pieces together the story of Che’s life, from early childhood to his revolutionary activities in Cuba, the Congo and Bolivia. Using previously unseen archive footage and stills, this remarkable diary of events includes interview footage with his father Ernesto, Fidel Castro and many other people who met and worked with him throughout his lifetime.

DVD Extras: A Photo Travels Around the World; Among Legends; October 1967.
