Editorial Reviews

In 1960, Cuban photographer Alberto Korda Díaz
snapped a photo of Ernesto Che Guevara. Eight years later, the image exploded throughout Europe and Latin America, where it became a symbol of protest and dissent. Today, the photograph remains one of the most dominant icons of the twentieth century. CHEVOLUTION is a film about a single photograph, and how this portrait, with its enigmatic gaze, became a symbol of countless visions for change.

Like others before and after him, Che does not come without controversy. This documentary describes in great detail how the most famous photograph of the 20th century made its way around the globe and intricate details behind the original publisher and owner.

Chevolution is an exploration into the uses of the image of Dr. Ernesto Guevara de la Serna raising questions about the photo as well as the photographer, Alberto Korda, who caught Che in the perfect moment of defiance. It is persuasive in telling the story of the image from its highly charged origin at the funeral march following the terrorist attack on El Cubre against the young revolutionary Cuba to its least enduring use as a fashion statement. That said, it can initiate a discussion as to who was Guevara and why has his image continued to inspire struggles for social justice long after his death. His image was present during the recent Arab Spring leading one to suggest that the quest for equality, like the ideology of Che, may be eternal.

This Marxist, murdering thug was responsible for anywhere between 400 and 2500 deaths via firing squads during the Cuban revolution. This film tries to make Guevara out to be this angelic savior of the downtrodden by overthrowing a corrupt administration and installing a nirvana in Cuba where everyone has everything they need. This couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, everything this pig attempted he failed. Look at the Garden of Eden he left behind in Cuba.

The people in this film are at best delusional in their assessment of Guevara. In an attempt to re-write history they even go so far as to compare the corpse of Guevara to Christ! I almost choked. But everyone agrees that the image of Guevara was to be shared by all as a symbol of cooperation that spits in the eye of capitalism. That is until Guevara and Korda died. Then Korda's heiress and daughter decided to err on the side of capitalism and copyright the image. Ironic, isn't it? This whole film is a left wing, Marxist puff piece by those in desperate need of a hero where none exists. I suggest if you watch this to follow up by doing your own research to see who Guevara really was in life.

I think of someone a knew in his job at a high-tech company where he would go to work at home, joke about spending a few million dollars on acquiring a company, all with Che, who he thought was cool, on his chest. Once, someone called him a capitalist and he was so insulted. Yet he travels, has a 2500 square foot home, a hot tub, buys jeans that cost $200 a pop and even has his hair foiled once a month for over a hundred without a tip. Dinner out, new skis, maybe a trip to Hawaii with his girlfriend are purchased without thought. And yet he wears Che, his hero, on his chest. He also considers himself a pacifist. Does not believe in violence. Works with the government, is a democrat. I always thought it strange. Being that we both studied international history in university I wondered, had he missed school the day they read chapter on Cuba?

The Che image is mesmerizing. He is amazingly sexy. But he was also a close comrade of Castro. A medical doctor, when he returned to Cuba he took up arms instead of medicine and murdered many. He said revolution cannot take place without love, but also believed guns and fighting and murder a part of it. The fact that the photographer who took the photo did not receive credit due to communist laws is insane. The image has become one of anyone who just thinks they are on the fringe. But whose fringe are you on? You can't work at Apple and think you are on the fringe. You can't save your stock options and fight for equality through socialism and anti-capitolism and wear a Che shirt unless you have some kind of large weapon under your desk and are planning to take over the government.

There doesn't seem to be a perfect form of government. There is always a rich and always a poor and always a huge divide between.
