Nearly 30 years ago, on October 9 1967, Che Guevara was executed by the Bolivian army aided by the CIA. Guevara’s diary, a detailed, personal account of his futile 11-month to spark a revolution in Bolivia, is the basis of this very intimate portrait.

"An understated, stunningly effective portrait. A stubborn ideologue, Fidel Castro’s comrade-in-arms and later, Cuba’s Minister of Industry, Guevara abandons his family and high position in 1965 for a shaky dream of permanent revolution, first in Zaire and later in Bolivia. But he sinks into catastrophe – caught in a cul-de-sac, many of his ragtag band of sixty soldiers dead or missing, the few survivors surrounded. We get all this in Guevara’s own words – tense, lean, worried, and empty of the brutality or bravado some may expect. A story stronger than myth, deeper than romance.”
– Michael Wilmington, CHICAGO TRIBUNE
