About

Newly Preserved with with an Avant-Garde Masters Grant through the support of the National Film Preservation Foundation. In 1967, José Rodriguez Soltero made “Dialogue with Che” (1968), starring Venezuelan artist, actor, producer and dancer Rolando Peña as Che. Warhol superstar Taylor Mead is also featured, in the role of a CIA agent. “The film was partly underwritten by Andy Warhol, who gave a check to cover lab fees. "Dialogue..." was seldom shown in the States - it is entirely in Spanish - but had some life in the European screens. It had a modest run at the Cinémathèque Française, where it was championed by Marie Meerson and Henri Langlois, and played at the Berlin Film Festival in 1969.

Historically, it has been shown with two prints projected side by side, the second screen starting with a 3-minute delay.

Digital Files available with English and Spanish subtitles.
