Gabo: Gabriel Garcia Marquez–Justin Webster’s Informative Docu

Known as “Gabo” to all of Latin America, Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ “magical” sensibility led him to the forefront of literary achievements and political struggles of the 1970s and 1980s, including a previously unknown role in negotiations between Cuban leader Fidel Castro and US President Bill Clinton.

Justin Webster’s informative docu explores how an extraordinary creative imagination can transform the raw elements of life—time and memory–into illuminating literary works.

In addition to Clinton, the docu features interviews with famous public figures, including writers Juan Gabriel Vásquez and Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza; journalists Enrique Santos, María Jimena Duzán and Xavi Ayén; New Yorker correspondent and author Jon Lee Anderson; biographer Gerald Martin; literary agent Carmen Balcells; and siblings Aída and Jaime García Márquez.
