With movies such as The Motorcycle Diaries, Festival Express, In the Cut, The Gleaners and I and Seducing Dr Lewis as well as the Magnetic Mango Short Film Comp and a selection from Flickerfest short film festival - all to be held at the Magnetic International - it looks like locals and visitors will be in for a very big weekend.

And just to put you in the picture Magnetic Times has reproduced the notes from the MI Film Society programme.

The Motorcycle Diaries


Dir. Walter Salles, 2004, 128 mins, M for language and sex scene, Spanish with English subtitles


The Motorcycle Diaries is based on the journals of Che Guevara, leader of the Cuban Revolution. In his memoirs, Guevara recounts adventures he, and best friend Alberto Granado, had while crossing South America by motorcycle in the early 1950s.

Acclaimed filmmaker Walter Salles directs a beautiful script from Jose Rivera and starring Rodrigo De la Serna and Gael Garca Bernal as the young Che Guevara. A love letter to a continent and its people, The Motorcycle Diaries is a rich cinematic adventure that is not to be missed.
"fabulous... it looks wonderful - a really inspiring story... very, very good" ****1/2 (David Stratton: At The Movies)

Hi guys, Just had to write and tell you that Motorcycle Diaries is a "fabuloso" film. It has amazing scenes of beautiful Peru and shows Lima as it really is. I watched this movie in Spanish with Icelandic subtitles and I still loved it 8*) (though may have missed some of the more meaningful dialogue). Have fun Suzy (Summer in Iceland at last)
