How did the iconic image of Che Guevara end up on beer bottles and bikinis? This inquiry into the ethics and aesthetics of appropriation investigates how the enduring symbol of Cuba's revolution skyrocketed to fame and was ultimately devoured by its own worst enemy: capitalism. This documentary follows the history of photographer Alberto Korda's iconic portrait of Argentinean revolutionary, Ernesto "Che" Guevara. The photograph was only published once, in the year it was taken, but to this day remains one of the most recognizable images of the 20th century.

Featuring : Antonio Banderas,Gael Garcia Barnel and Tom Morello.

"Revolution is always with us: this week’s guerrilla documentary, watchable and well-researched, is Chevolution. " Financial Times

"This intelligent documentary wonders how it happened, and how a hardline Marxist keen on political violence became a marketing tool and patron saint of every vaguely anti-establishment movement on the planet. "--Independent

"Fascinating biography of an image, showing how an artist's work can take on a life of its own. "

    the date on the first offer appears to be wrong :(
    I tried to buy online tonight and saw that the VLAFF page says the 18th. What gives?
