Here is a pair of pictures from Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming two-part bio-pic Che, starring Benico del Toro as the South American Marxist revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara. The first of the films, The Argentine, covers the controversial figure’s life up through the Cuban Revolution, while Guerrilla will cover Guevara’s post-Cuban Revolution life as a leader of various third world Marxist uprisings.
Based on my own sketchy knowledge of Guevara’s life, I would hazard a guess that we’re looking at one picture from each of the two films.
Oddly enough, though, Focus Features has only picked up The Argentine for US distribution. Guerrilla is still looking for a distributor, though that could change after both films screen back-to-back at the Cannes Festival later this week.
