Film: Diarios de motocicleta/The Motorcycle Diaries
November 17, 2016
Drawn from the real-life journals of two young Argentines, Alberto Granado and Ernesto “Che” Guevara de la Serna, Diarios de Motocicleta traces their eight-month, 8,000-mile road trip across South America in 1952. What begins as a lark turns into a profound journey of discovery, as their aging motorcycle carries the two farther and farther away from the familiar comfort of Buenos Aires; the trip through the rich and complex human and social topography of the continent provides the formative experiences that turn Che Guevara into a famous revolutionary. Directed by Walter Salles; presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes.
