We are starting our new movie club this month, featuring Gael Garcia Bernal movies!
Come join us, Wednesday, as we watch Diarios de Motocicleta [ Motorcycle Diaries].
On a break before his last semester of medical school, Ernesto “Che” Guevara (Gael García Bernal) travels with his friend, Alberto Granado (Rodrigo De la Serna), from Brazil, to Peru, by motorcycle. The two men soon witness the great disparities in South America, encountering poor peasants, and observing the exploitation of labor, by wealthy industrialists. When they reach a leper colony, in Peru, Ernesto’s values have changed so much that he sides with the sufferers, forgetting his own comfort.
Admission tickets are only $7 – half the price of a commercial complex, double the fun. With English subtitles.
