In 1956, Ernesto 'Che' Guevara and a band of Castro-led Cuban exiles mobilize an army to topple the regime of dictator Fulgencio Batista.
Terrence Malick originally worked on a screenplay limited to Guevara's attempts to start a revolution in Bolivia. When financing fell through, Malick left the project, and subsequently Steven Soderbergh agreed to direct the film.
Ernesto Che Guevara:
Executions? Yes, we have executed. We execute, and we'll continue to execute.
When Che is outlining his conditions to the UN, one of the cutaways shows some soldiers crossing a muddy river. During the scene, a crew member in contemporary clothing can be seen standing on a grassy bank to the left of the frame.
