Radical Film Night: Che (Part1)
--> Wed Aug 19, 7pm
Che, The Argentine, begins as Che and a band of Cuban exiles (led by Fidel
Castro) reach the Cuban shore from Mexico in 1956.  Within two years, they
mobilized popular support and an army and toppled the U.S.-friendly regime of
dictator Fulgencio Batista.

Radical Film Night: Che (Part 2)
--> Wed Aug 26, 7pm

In 1965, Ernesto 'Che' Guevara resigns from his Cuban government posts to
secretly make his latest attempt to spread the revolution in Bolivia.  After
arriving in La Paz, Bolivia late in 1966, by 1967, Che with several Cuban
volunteers, have raised a small guerrilla army to take on the militarist
Bolivian movement.  However, Che must face grim realities about his few troops
and supplies, his failing health, and a local population who largely does not
share his idealistic aspirations.  As the US supported Bolivian army prepares
to defeat him, Che and his beleaguered force struggle against the increasingly
hopeless odds.
