In 1997 the Argentine filmmaker Fernando Birri returned to his home country to film a documentary on the 30th anniversary of the death of Che Guevara and the relevance of utopias at that time. Carmen Guarini decided to record those moments. A rough edit of this film was hidden away on a fragile VHS tape for twenty years. Today, these images come to life and shed some light on the life of this Latin American poet and master filmmaker, who, at the age of 92, still refused to give up on his own utopias. With Fernando Birri, Eduardo Galeano, Ernesto Sabato, León Ferrari, Tanya Valette.
San Francisco: Dec. 12 at the Roxie. A Q&A via Skype with director Carmen Guarini will follow the screening.
