The Motorcycle Diaries

Back to listing

In 1952, medical student Ernesto Guevara and his friend Alberto Granado embark on a voyage across South America by motorbike. On the way, they encounter inequality and come face to face with the social and political realities of their continent. This film, which won an award at Cannes, is more than a travel film – it recounts the political awakening of the young man who would later come to be known as Che.
