IWW May Film Series

THE IWW (INDUSTRIAL WORKERS OF THE WORLD) film for the month of May will be CHE: PART ONE. Academy Award winning actor Benicio Del Toro delivers an extraordinary performance about the legendary revolutionary "Che" Guevara. November 26, 1959; led by Fidel Castro (Demian Bichir), a band of 80 rebels sails for Cuba. Among these young rebels is Argentine physician, Marxist, soldier, Ernesto "Che" Guevara. Nation less, strapped for resources and fueled only by determination, the group engages in swift, bloody battle to free the Cuban people from the corrupt dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. Che and his soldiers wrestle the nation's resources and affection from Batista's grasp. Though considered a hero by some, Che becomes a hugely controversial figure. The film is directed by Steven Soderbergh. The film is also being cosponsored by THE BLOOM COLLECTIVE. It is free and open to the public with a discussion to follow.
