Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams is to feature alongside Hollywood stars Antonio Banderas and Gael Garcia Bernal in a new documentary-style film on the life of Che Guevara.
The film, which is entitled Chevolution, is being made by a friend of Mr Adams, Trisha Ziff, and will examine the life and times of the iconic Cuban revolutionary.
Mr Adams will feature in the movie as himself, talking about the impact of Che Guevara 40 years after his death and his iconic image.
Banderas and Bernal, who played Che Guevara, in the movie The Motorcycle Diaries, will also be speaking about how influential he was and what his image means to them.
The documentary is due to be premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York later this month.
However, it is understood Mr Adams will not be attending due to other commitments.
A spokesman for the west Belfast MP said: "Gerry was one of a range of people interviewed for this documentary.
"The interview took place in London and he was asked when he first saw the iconic image of Che Guevara, what the image means to him, the impact on the conflict here and his lasting legacy 40 years on.
"Trisa Ziff is a highly respected documentary maker and photographer and Gerry was happy to take part," he added.
In 2006, Mr Adams was snubbed by a top London museum who failed to invite him to a Che Guevara photographic exhibition.
Trisha Ziff was the curator of the exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum and branded the decision not to invite the Sinn Fein boss as " absurd".
Ms Ziff's interest in Che Guevara prompted her decision to make the documentary, which in-cludes archive footage of the revolutionary himself.
The film will be co-directed by Luis Lopez.
