Gabo, la creación de Gabriel García Márquez

Exactly ten years ago, world-renowned Colombian Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez died. This spring his posthumous novel In August We’ll See Each Other will be published, and later this year Netflix will launch the highly anticipated series based on his masterpiece One Hundred Years of Solitude. The perfect time for a screening of Gabo, la creación de Gabriel García Márquez.
How did a boy from a forgotten village among the banana plantations become a famous writer who captured the hearts of millions, from the poorest of the poor to powerful politicians like Fidel Castro and Bill Clinton? This documentary by award-winning filmmaker Justin Webster tells the compelling story of the immortal ‘Gabo’. Through unique testimonies and images, we get an in-depth look into the life and work of a man who changed the world with his words. This performance, at the initiative of the UGent Spanish Department, came about in collaboration with the Embassy of Colombia.
