Presented by student Tina Tarpy, the film will be shown at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 30 at Java City in APSU's University Center.

The film is based on the book, “Motorcycle Diaries,” a collection of diary entries written by Ernesto “Che” Guevara during his journey through South America.

Tarpy says, “Guevara's reflections of the daily life of the people and their customs, combined with his vivid portrayals of geological features and diverse landscapes, create an interesting panorama of South American life.

“Underlying political and economic tensions emerge as the journey progresses into countries in turmoil. Guevara becomes a witness to several revolutions and becomes involved in the Cuban revolution. He later left Cuba to participate in various guerilla movements and was executed in Bolivia.”

The film is free and open to the public.
