Che Part One trailer & Che Part One Poster

A labour of love for Academy Award-winning director, Steven Soderbergh (TRAFFIC, OCEAN'S ELEVEN) CHE features a career defining performance from Benicio Del Toro (SIN CITY, TRAFFIC) in the title role which won the Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival 2008.

The first film in Steven Soderbergh's two-part Che Guevara epic tracks the charismatic revolutionary as he joins Fidel Castro's band of Cuban exiles and journeys to the island on a leaky boat in 1956. From these humble beginnings, the small team of rebels mobilise popular support and recruit an army which will ultimately topple the U.S.-friendly regime of dictator Fulgencio Batista, while Che himself undergoes a transformation from a simple doctor to one of the most iconic political figures of the modern age.
