On the film:
By means of this documentary we hope to disentangle some key factors: his intimacy, his never ending education, his coherence, studies and thought processes at the service of action and the construction of a new world, his extraordinarily poetic outlook of reality.
The narrative's primary support is the atmosphere generated by the evocation of memory; the idea is to present snippets of memory in which certain acts or deeds take place, seen from an intimate and subjective viewpoint, that of Ernesto Guevara, based on his texts, his recordings and literary narrations, stock footage from the time in which he lived and its contraposition to the current times, with a world scarred by violence and inequality.
After more than ten years of research while studying his written works, we believe that it is fundamental to offer the mythical image of Che from a new perspective, from the depth of his philosophy, to offer a dimension that lends new meaning to his public performance and shows the greatness of his acts.
