The Man Who Shot Che Guevara

The story behind the most famous photograph of the 20th Century, ‘Guerillero Heroico’, and its creator, Alberto Korda.As Fidel Castro’s personal
photographer, the man born as Alberto Diaz Gutierrez captured more than
12,000 images of the Cuban Revolution as it unfolded.From 1998 to
2001, director Héctor Cruz Sandoval accompanied Korda to the sites of his
most famous photographs where the circumstances behind each were
recounted, granting a poignancy and insight to the life of one of the most
celebrated photojournalists of our time.

Kordavision is a
Cuban Revelation, from Korda’s pioneering work in the world of fashion
photography to his groundbreaking exploration of underwater optical
imaging, A career spanning fifty years comes full circle when the artist
is reunited with his subject. In an intimate, preconception-shattering
interview, Fidel Castro pays tribute to the man whose photographs
documented The Revolution, and whose spirit and destiny encapsulate that
of his homeland.

Proceeds to go
to our project supporting a Cuban medical program in Granma
province.
