SYNOPSIS

In 1997, the Argentinian filmmaker Fernando Birri returns to his country to shoot a documentary about the 30th anniversary of Che Guevara’s death and the relevance of utopias at that time. Carmen Guarini decided to shoot those moments. That rough cut of the film was hidden for twenty years in a fragile VHS; these images become alive today and shed light on the validity of this poet and master of Latin American cinema, who is 92 years old and is still resisting to abandon his own utopias.
