A God-send apostle of magical realism, a master craftsman who stands tall on the unique path of storytelling etched by him and him only and the chronicler of the colorful life of the Caribbean Coast, Gabo: Gabriel Garcia Marquez is, perhaps, one of the most important literary figures of our times. Now, a visual portrait of the Nobel Prize-winning author, who died last year at the age of 87, is getting ready with the title, Gabo: The Creation of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Directed by Barcelona-based filmmaker Justin Webster and shot in Colombia (the writer’s native country), Cuba, France, Mexico, Spain and the Us, “Gabo” asks the question, “How did a boy from a tiny town on the Caribbean coast become a writer who won the hearts of millions? How did he change our perception of reality with his work?”
For all those who love this immortal genius of everlasting verses, here is the trailer:
