Kordavision is a documentary on a journey into the world of renowned Cuban photographer, Alberto Diaz "Korda," revealing the powerful images captured by Korda, reflecting Cuba's soul. No other image in history has been reproduced as many times as Alberto Korda’s portrait of Che Guevara. That shot, taken at a memorial service on March 5, 1960, became the international symbol of protest and rebellion, yet the photographer never profited from the image he gave to the world. As Fidel Castro’s personal photographer, the man born as Alberto Diaz Gutierrez captured more than 12,000 images of the Cuban Revolution as it unfolded. In spite of his fame, Alberto Korda remains one of the most humble artisans the world has ever known.
