Che, Memories of a Secret Year
Friday, May. 3, 2019 – Sunday, May. 5, 2019
Appearance by director Margarita Hernández
Debut filmmaker Margarita Hernández presents a side of Che Guevara not found in other films. Yes, Guevara was the Argentine doctor who rode his motorcycle across the continent to fight for the Cuban Revolution. But Hernández’s film illuminates a little-known time in the revolutionary’s life: after Fidel Castro famously read Guevara’s resignation from Cuban governmental duties on camera. Guevara then mysteriously disappeared—hiding in Tanzania and Prague, where, thanks to prosthetics and a new identity, he evaded CIA agents.
Friday, May 3: 7 p.m.
