El Dia que me quieras: un numero infinito de cosas

Investigating death and the power of photography, this film is a meditation on the last picture taken of Che Guevara, as he lay dead on a table, surrounded by his captors. The photograph, taken by Freddy Alborta in 1967, has been compared to Mantegna's Dead Christ and Rembrandt's The Anatomy Lesson of Professor Tulp. The film, a montage of Alborta's memories of that day, his photographs and rare newsreel footage of the event, is an attempt to deconstruct the myth of Guevera. 1997. 30 min.
