More Than Just A Pop Art Image?
19 February 2017 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

And, what does the image of "Che" mean to you?

Believe it, or not - This one, single, iconic image of Argentinian revolutionary, Ernesto "Che" Guevara (which was taken by fashion photographer, Alberto Korda in 1960) has become (sometimes illegally) one of the most reproduced likenesses in modern-day history.

Through archival footage, interviews, and informative narration - The viewer learns everything there is to know (who, what, when, where, why and how) that directly relates to this particular photograph of "Che" (who, at 39, was assassinated in 1967) which has clearly become such a vastly recognizable image like no other.
