"GABO:The Magic of reality"
(Gabo: La magia de lo real)

Justin Webster/Documentary/ 90 Min /2015/PG
How did a boy from a backward town on the Caribbean coast, become a writer who won the hearts of millions, from the poorest to the most powerful political leaders, and whose works changed our perception of reality?

The answer is the incredible story of Gabriel García Márquez, the 1982 Nobel Prize winner for Literature, author of the globally popular, and critically-acclaimed masterpiece 100 Years of Solitude, who grew up in the poverty and violence of northern Colombia, and propelled by a love of life and a sensual, magical sensibility, followed a path that took him not only into a pioneer of life-affirming literature, but to the forefront of the political struggles of the 70s and 80s, through his militant journalism and his friendships with political leaders such as Fidel Castro and Bill Clinton.

The film is a story about the incredible power of human imagination, which follows the interwoven threads of Gabriel García Márquez's life and work - "Gabo" to all of Latin America -with the narrative tension of an investigation.

“We inventors of fables who believe in everything, feel the right to believe it is not too late to create a different utopia. A new and imposing utopia of life where no one decides for others how to die and where the races condemned to 100 years of solitude have at last and forever a second opportunity on earth.”
