Castro vs Guevara:
A Friendship Tested by Revolution

Synopsis

Che Guevara, the radical thinker, and Fidel Castro, the political animal… could they ever share the image of the liberating saviour of Latin America ? Did Che Guevara, the diehard combatant, set off towards certain death in Bolivia ? Or did the manipulative Fidel Castro progressively abandon his increasingly dangerous brother-in-arms in order to maintain his own authority ? From the birth of a revolutionary friendship in Mexico to the exploitation of an iconic image in Havana, this duel is a fascinating game of chess, where lies and manipulation and internecine power struggles completely changed the rules of the game
