From Che, With Love

“And now for you, Aleida, what is most deeply mine and the deepest part of both
of us…” –Ernesto “Che” Guevara, speaking to his wife and reading from the poems of Martínez Villena, César Vallejo, and Pablo Neruda in a new documentary, Che, Un Hombre Nuevo.

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.
