The Motorcycle Diaries

Directed by Walter Salles

Based on the journals of both Alberto Granado and Ernesto Guevara (The Motorcycle Diaries), Brazilian director Walter Salles follows a journey of self-discovery and traces the origins of a revolutionary heart. Described by Salles as also being about friendship, solidarity and finding one’s place in the world, The Motorcycle Diaries is also perhaps the ultimate Latin American road movie. Imbued with a verité aesthetic, it made an international star of García Bernal.
