Che, A New Man
Che, un hombre nuevo | Tristan Bauer, 2010
Argentina | Spanish with English subtitles | 94 minutes

U.S. Premiere

The latest documentary by Tristan Bauer took 12 years to complete.  It is a unique and invaluable historical document—a jewel not to be missed—that offers us a different, more intimate and personal, perspective on the life of Ernesto Che Guevara than other films about him that have emerged recently. Presenting brilliantly edited archival material, including private documents and intimate recordings that have never been made available to the public before (including recordings of Che reading poems by Vallejo and Neruda to his wife, intimate family gatherings on 8mm, a speech given by Che in French), Bauer allows us to see the iconic figure as a hero but also as the larger-than-life passionate and idealistic human being that he was.
