Trailer: two-part documentary Gabriel Garcia Márquez

In particular, his books "One Hundred Years of Solitude" and "Love in the Time of Cholera" brought him world fame. He was the friend of great statesmen and was seen as one of the most important political voices in Latin America.

Juan Gabriel Vásquez, a writer and admirer of Márquez, who was also affectionately known as Gabo, follows in his footsteps and tries to explain how a boy from a small Colombian village managed to change 20th Century western literature. His novel "One Hundred Years of Solitude," a family saga that reflects the tragedy of Latin America, marked the birth of so-called "magical realism.” García Márquez grew up with his grandparents in Aracataca and the stories of his grandmother in particular fed into his writing. The second of these films takes the viewer through García Márquez’s life and looks at important moments, meeting friends, companions and admirers such as Bill Clinton and even shines a light on his often criticized friendship with the Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
