On October 9, 1967, Che Guevara was executed by the Bolivian Army, aided by the CIA. Che's diary, a detailed, personal account of his futile, attempt to spark a revolution in Bolivia, is the basis of this intimate portrait.
An overview of the two-day doctor Mostafa Chamran life (commander of the Iran-Iraq War, who was educated in America and was expert in guerrilla warfare) this film about Defense for peace in the Paveh (city in Iran).
There are some remarkable scenes of Guevara's youth in Argentina, as well as much footage of the early days in Cuba, circa 1955-59. The interviews with those who knew him are fascinating, particularly the ones with one of his old comrades in arms.
I'll bet that Castro breathed an immense sigh of relief when he heard that Che had died in Bolivia; here was a galvanic, talented yet completely reckless and undisciplined man finally out of his (Castro's) hair. Che had been playing the charming Trotsky to Fidel's Lenin for too long.
