Chevolution is a new documentary/film that tells the story of most iconic and reproduced photos of Che Guevara by Alberto 'Korda' Diaz. The photo was not actually taken for the purpose of use on propanagnda or as the semi official portrait it later became. It was actually a snapshot that Korda took of Guevara at a memorial service in 1960. Nothing was thought of the image it was not even used in newspapers at the time. It was not until 1965 that the picture began to appear and subsequently took many different forms.
