World View: Cultures in Words

The Motorcycle Diaries

The World View Film series, hosted by Global & Cultural Affairs in ARTS Missoula, is back at the Roxy Theater, featuring four movies about "Cultures in Words": films which reveal the power of the written world to change the world. Following each free screening, Humanities MT speaker Marisa Diaz-Waian will facilitate a community conversation, inspired by questions raised in the movie. The conversations aim to create a space for thoughtful dialogue, reflection, and sharing.  

On a break before his last semester of medical school, Ernesto "Che" Guevara (Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal) travels with his friend Alberto Granado (Rodrigo de la Serna) from Brazil to Peru by motorcycle. The two men soon witness the great disparities in South America, encountering poor peasants and observing the exploitation of labor by wealthy industrialists. When they reach a leper colony in Peru, Ernesto's values have changed so much that he sides with the sufferers, forgetting his own comfort.
