Description


The book of the new, two-part biopic on Che Guevara starring Benicio Del Toro as the legendary revolutionary.

Director Steven Soderbergh has based his two Che movies (Che: The Argentine and Che: Guerrilla) on two classic diaries written by Che Guevara: Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War (an account of the guerrilla movement led by Fidel Castro that overthrew the Batista dictatorship in 1959) and Bolivian Diary (Che’s famous, unfinished diary discovered in his backpack when he was captured and killed in Bolivia in October 1967).

Che: Guerrilla Diaries includes a selection from each book, showing the young Argentine’s evolution from the wide-eyed medical student of the Motorcycle Diaries-era to the revolutionary hero the world knows as Che.

Features:

Key excerpts from Che’s Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War, his final Bolivian Diary, his fiery address to the UN General Assembly, and interviews with US journalist Lisa Howard and CBS’ Face the Nation during his visit to New York in December 1964.Che’s first encounter with Fidel Castro in Mexico, when he immediately commits himself to join the guerrilla expedition to Cuba.The dramatic moment when Che has to decide his future either as a doctor or a guerrilla fighter, symbolized by the choice of two backpacks: one with medicine, the other with ammunition.Che’s poetic letter to his parents before he sets out on the fateful Bolivia mission.Maps, chronology, and a useful glossary.Thirty-six pages of original photos from the period and stills from the movie.Movie tie-in cover.Blurbs by Benicio del Toro and Steven Soderbergh.

Also published in English this season is Che: Guerrilla Diaries, 978-1-920888-93-0.
