Commander Ernesto Che Guevara
Cuban film "San Ernesto Nace en la Higuera" was awarded the best foreign documentary at the Icaro Central American Film and Video Festival.

The film directed by famous actress Isabel Santos and photographer Rafael Solis tackles the legend created around the guerrillas Commander Ernesto Che Guevara in the small Bolivian village where he fought and was assassinated.

"The documentary seems to be very interesting for us because it represents a different angle and it is the reaction of the settlers from the village to how he died", declared to Prensa Latina Maria Rivera, member of the jury.

The member of Mar del Plata International Film Festival and also producer emphasized the paradox that Che became a saint among the people from Valle Grande although he was an atheist.

This Central American feast was extended from November 2 to 9 and films from 15 Latin American countries took part in the event.
