<p class="MsoNormal">Katie Beeler</p>  <p class="MsoNormal">Che Part 1</p>  <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="">            </span>The film <i style="">Che </i>is set at the beginning of the Cuban revolution.<span style="">  </span>It portrays the rise of the support for revolution and how it was executed through the leadership of the Revolutionaries. While the film mainly focuses on the leadership of Che Guevara, the article “Guerrilla warfare: A Method” explains how revolutionaries are able to achieve revolutions. The article states that the organization and the leadership involved in heading a revolution “can accelerate or delay revolution.” </p>  <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="">            </span>This is prevalent in the film and the structure in which the leadership of the Cuban revolution organized themselves. The revolutionaries were organized in a hierarchy that was so well disciplined there was little room for discrepancies. The leadership made education mandatory as well as a moral standard that was harshly instituted in several situations throughout the film. </p>  <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="">            </span>Although the film focuses mainly on the work of Che himself, the article reminds its readers that revolutions are not formed from the efforts of one person or a small force. It is rather formed from the passions for change that comes from the people affected by the need for revolution. It’s clear in the film that the people of Cuba that are represented are more than wiling to give their lives to change their government and way of life. The two younger men refuse to leave even though Che tells them they are too young, others beg to join when they are turned away because they can’t read.</p>  <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="">            </span>So if this article is correct and that a single person can not start a revolution then why is Che seen as the face of the Cuban revolution? In the article “Between Bohemianism and a Revolutionary Rebirth” by Eric Zolov, Che’s importance is explained. Che stood as a symbol of giving up everything for a greater cause. There was nothing<span style="">  </span>that could stand as a symbol of revolution greater than Che. This would later play a greater role in the student movement when they had someone to mimic in their own movement which would also require them to give up their lives such as Che did. </p><div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/5918626914749343969-3636941651297871769?l=getoutofmyheadandintomyblog.blogspot.com' alt='' /></div>
