We will be screening Steven Soderbergh’s “Che” Part 1, a critically acclaimed 2008 film that portrays Che’s role in the Cuban Revolution at the Harriet Tubman Solidarity Center in preparation for the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Che Guevara and in support of local brigade members who will be traveling to Cuba for the “International Brigade/In the Footsteps of Che.

Join us not only for an amazing film but also to meet the Baltimore delegation, a group of mostly young people who will be participating in the brigade.
The Cuban Friendship Institute – ICAP (Instituto Cubano de Amistad con los Pueblos) has invited delegations from around the world to participate and mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Che Guevara.
Funds raised will help to pay the costs of local brigade members.

We are asking for a suggested $5 to $10 donation at the door. No one turned away for lack of funds. It’s more important that you come and participate. Free refreshments!
Doors open at 6:30 pm for refreshments and to meet with brigade members. Film will start at 7 pm sharp.

More on the film from Rotten Tomatoes:
“Nearly 40 years after Che Guevara’s execution in Bolivia, director Steven Soderbergh retraces the life of the iconic Cuban revolutionary in this nearly four-and-a-half-hour saga. Part 1 begins on November 26, 1956, as Fidel Castro (Demián Bichir) sails into Cuban waters with 80 rebels in tow. Among those rebels is Argentine doctor Ernesto “Che” Guevara (Benicio Del Toro), a man who shares Castro’s dream of overthrowing corrupt dictator Fulgencio Batista. As the struggle gets under way, Guevara proves an indispensable part of the revolution due to his firm grasp on the concepts of guerilla warfare. Guevara is heartily embraced by both his comrades and the Cuban people, and quickly rises through the ranks to become first a commander, and ultimately a revolutionary hero.”
