FILM AND AUDIO FILES, INCLUDING INTERVIEWS WITH MICHAEL CASEY AND OTHER CHE-RELATED PROJECTS
CNN DOES CHE
Argentina-based journalist Brian Byrnes put this great video together for CNN based on my presentation at the Buenos Aires Book Fair in April 2009. Check out more of Brian’s work at his site, www.brianbyrnes.com and its accompanying blog, As Belgrano Byrnes.
COUNTRY PUNK, BORGES POETRY, CASEY ON CHE - THE SILVER CHAIR PODCAST
Check out this podcast from the quirkily enticing Silver Chair online bookstore, which intersperses alternative country band the Waco Brothers with a Borges poem and a comprehensive interview on all things Che with yours truly. Now there’s some odd bedfellows for you:
A video a made for The Wall Street Journal’s online site from file footage leftover from some work I did for the Chevolution documentary (see below.) It deals with the opinions of Argentines toward Che. It attracted so many dueling comments from pro- and anti-Che respondents that it became the fourth-most discussed WSJ film on the net.
The trailer for Trisha Ziff and Luis Lopez’s fabulous documentary. I briefly appear at the very end of the clip. The film includes interviews with better-known commentators who’ve had varying types of associations with the Korda image and the Che phenomenon. These include Antonio Banderas, Gael García Bernal, Gerry Adams, Jon Lee Anderson, Tom Morrell and Shepard Fairey.
I was not involved in Personal Che, but its filmmakers and I found our paths crossing as we sought out the Che image around the world. It’s another great film, one that captures the rich cultural complexity of the Korda Che icon.
