SYNOPSIS 

Debut filmmaker Margarita Hernández presents a side of Che Guevara not found in other films. Yes, Guevara was the Argentinean doctor who rode his motorcycle across the continent to fight for the Cuban Revolution. But Che, Memories of a Secret Year illuminates a little-known time in the revolutionary’s life in 1965: after Fidel Castro famously read Guevara’s resignation from Cuban governmental duties on camera. Guevara then mysteriously disappeared—hiding in Tanzania and Prague, where, as the result of prosthetics and a new identity, he evaded CIA agents.
