CHE: PART ONE and CHE: PART TWO
Epic biopic of revolutionary Che Guevara opens in San Francisco January 9, 2009 and in Berkeley January 16, 2009.

IFC Films presents CHE: PART ONE and CHE: PART TWO, an epic biopic presented as two films from Academy Award winning director Steven Soderbergh (TRAFFIC, ERIN BROKOVICH) and starring Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro (TRAFFIC, USUAL SUSPECTS). In Spanish, partially subtitled in English.

Director Steven Soderbergh's two-part epic about the life of Ernesto "Che" Guevara stars Benicio Del Toro (Best Actor, 2008 Cannes Film Festival) in a tour de force performance as the legendary revolutionary.

CHE: PART ONE shows how Che proved to be an indispensible fighter, along with Fidel Castro, in the overthrow of the corrupt dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. As he throws himself into the struggle, Che is embraced by his comrades and the Cuban people. Che rises to prominence in the Cuban Revolution, from doctor to commander to revolutionary hero.

CHE: PART TWO shows Che at the height of his fame and power. Then he disappears, re-emerging incognito in Bolivia, where he organizes a small group of Cuban comrades and Bolivian recruits to start the great Latin American Revolution. The story of the Bolivian campaign is a tale of tenacity, sacrifice, idealism, and of guerrilla warfare that ultimately fails, bringing Che to his death. Through this story, we come to understand how Che remains a symbol of idealism and heroism that lives in the hearts of people around the world.
