Ernesto Che Guevara, 50 Years On: 1967–2017

15 Oct 2017

Fifty years after the Bolivian army killed Ernesto Guevara de la Serna, the ICA revisits the life of the political visionary known as El Che.

By screening the 2004 film The Motorcycle Diaries by director Walter Salles, the ICA celebrates this legendary figure, who since the 1960s has become a point of reference, an icon and a symbol of human rights and freedom.

As we are facing the loss of political horizons in the West, engulfed by the post-truth era of right wing populism, it is more important than ever to remember the ideas of an inspiring revolutionary who resisted capitalism and fought on an international scale for a more human and fair society.
