Che Film Shoot Begins in Bolivia

La Prensa, Cuba

La Paz, Dec 4 (Prensa Latina) Puerto Rican actor Benicio del Toro began filming "Guerrilla" on Tuesday, telling media he was an admirer of Ernesto Che Guevara, whom he plays, and who was murdered in La Higuera, Bolivia on October 9, 1967.

Del Toro, who went to Quemado Palace last night to celebrate Latin American Medicine Day, said two of his dreams have come true in Bolivia: to learn of the work of Cuban doctors and to meet President Evo Morales.

The Oscar-winning actor (Traffic, 2000) said he was feeling secure to be under direction again of US director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic, Sex, Lies and Video Tapes), with whom he visited Quemado Palace.

The film will portray the moment when Che met current Cuban President Fidel Castro in Mexico, and narrates moments of his stay in Cuba, besides his speech before the United Nations.
