Playing March 27 - April 2, 2022
Directors: Terrence Malick, Steven Soderbergh
Nearly 40 years after Che Guevara's execution in Bolivia, director Steven Soderbergh retraces the life of the iconic Cuban revolutionary in this nearly four-and-a-half-hour (two-part) saga. Part 1 begins in 1956 as Fidel Castro (Demián Bichir) sails into Cuban waters with 80 rebels in tow, including Argentine doctor Ernesto "Che" Guevara (Benicio Del Toro), a man who shares Castro's dream of overthrowing corrupt dictator Fulgencio Batista. As the struggle gets under way, Guevara proves an indispensable part of the revolution due to his firm grasp on the concepts of guerilla warfare. Guevara is heartily embraced by both his comrades and the Cuban people, and quickly rises through the ranks to become first a commander, and ultimately a revolutionary hero.
Part 2 of the saga begins with Guevara at the absolute peak of his fame and power. Disappearing suddenly, Guevara subsequently resurfaces in Bolivia to organize a modest group of Cuban comrades and Bolivian recruits in preparation for the Latin American Revolution. But while the Bolivian campaign would ultimately fail, the tenacity, sacrifice and idealism displayed by Guevara during this period would make him a symbol of heroism to followers around the world.
PLEASE NOTE: Che will be shown two parts. Part 1 will be shown during matinees and the first evening show. Part 2 will be offered at the 9 p.m. showing. There will be a separate ticket sold for each film. Schedule is subject to change.
