In 1960, Cuban photographer Alberto “Korda” Díaz captured a photo of Ernesto “Che” Guevara during a mass funeral. Following his death and in the midst of social unrest, this photograph became the most reproduced image of a person in the 20th century. Acting as a catalyst for artists and rebels alike, this image soon became a potent symbol of revolution and student chic. As the decades moved on, removed from the context of rebellion and social change, Korda’s image of Che was soon appropriated for commerce, selling everything from beer, cigarettes to shoes and clothes. This documentary investigates how this portrait, with its enigmatic gaze, removed from time and context, has become an enduring symbol for countless visions and agendas.
