In 1960, Cuban photographer Alberto 'Korda' Diaz snapped a photo of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara. Eight years later, the image exploded throughout Europe and Latin America, when it became the symbol of protest and dissent. Today, the photograph remains one of the most dominant icons of the twentieth century. Chevolution is a film about a single photograph, and how this portrait with its enigmatic gaze became a symbol of countless visions for change.

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.
