Free Film Tonight At Cafe Rozella:”The Motorcycle Diaries”
Tonight at 7pm, come to Cafe Rozella’s Friday FREE Film Night and see “The Motorcycle Diaries,” a biographical film about the journey and written memoir of the 23-year-old Ernesto Guevara, who would years later become internationally known as the iconic Marxist revolutionary “Che” Guevara.
Did we mention that it’s FREE? As in…NO COVER?
“The Motorcycle Diaries” is based on the journals of Che Guevara, leader of the Cuban Revolution. In his memoirs, Guevara recounts adventures that he and his best friend Alberto Granado had while crossing South America by motorcycle in the early 1950s.
The Motorcycle Diaries is an adaptation of a journal written by Guevara when he was 23 years old. He and his friend, Alberto Granado are typical college students who, seeking fun and adventure before graduation, decide to travel across Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia, and Venezuela in order to do their medical residency at a leper colony.
Beginning as a buddy/road movie in which Ernesto and Alberto are looking for chicks, fun and adventure before they must grow up and have a more serious life. As is said in the film itself, it’s about “two lives running parallel for a while.” The two best friends start off with the same goals and aspirations, but by the time the film is over, it’s clear what each man’s destiny has become.
