THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES
Presented by Tina Flores

This film, directed by Walter Salles, traces the youthful origins of a revolutionary spirit. It follows two daring friends on a life-changing journey, Enesto “Che” Guevara and Alberto Granado, who hop on the back of a beat-up motorcycle for a breathtaking road trip across Latin America. There are no cheap shots and only one “Che” joke --- to explain the origin of the nickname. This thrilling adventure story is a deeply felt examination of the events that inspired Che’s political consciousness to develop, with only a few touches of the hagiography that has developed around “el Che.” While the plot revolves around Che’s awakening to the social struggles of South America, there is a rich sense of place, and people, and beauty in the film. The cinematography is truly gorgeous and has pulled off a major feat in shooting a period film in a slightly grainy, sometimes shaky hand-held perspective. This film covers the full human spectrum: adventurous, exciting, moving, meaningful, beautiful, important.


Before and after the films, everyone’s invited to indulge in our Humanist Tea House
