The myth of Che Guevara lives on

"Marxist, soldier, physician and the power behind Fidel Castro." That's how the movie trailer for Steven Soderbergh's new movie, Guerrilla, describes Ernesto "Che" Guevara.
Guerrilla has triggered controversy in South Florida, where anti-Castro activists and others have protested the film. Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro went to a screening of the movie in Havana over the weekend.
The movie is set for release on Jan. 24, 2009, in the United States. A 2-minute, 31-second trailer is here. I shot the picture of the Che mural, above, in Havana.
