‘Che’ docu travels to Berlin

'Diaries' will screen at Cannes instead

BERLIN — “Traveling With Che Guevara,” a documentary by Italian Gianni Mina made during the shooting of Walter Salles’ “The Motorcycle Diaries,” has been added to the Berlin Intl. Film Festival’s Panorama section.

The last-minute entry to this year’s spotlight on Latin America focuses on Alberto Granado, whose travels throughout South America with friend and fellow Argentinean Guevara in 1952 are the subject of Salles’ feature, which is based on Guevara’s journal.

The 81-year-old Granado, who will come from his home in Cuba to the Berlinale next month along with Mina, was technical advisor to Salles during the filming of “Motorcycle Diaries.”

In Mina’s docu, Granado clarifies incidents, recounts his own memories and gives advice to actor Gael Garcia Bernal, who plays Guevara, and Rodrigo de la Serna, who portrays the young Granado.

“Reliving all this seems like a dream,” Granado said about the project. “Travelling With Che Guevara: The Making of a Revolutionary” is also the title of Granado’s own account of the road trip.

The Panorama includes 17 documentaries, alongside 34 feature films. “The Motorcycle Diaries” had been expected to screen at the Berlinale but is headed for Cannes.
