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.

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.
