Raised by grandparents in northern Colombia, Gabriel García Márquez, 1982 Nobel Laureate in Literature, found a lifetime of inspiration in the superstitions, poverty, violence, and family lore of his remote village, celebrated eccentrically and hauntingly through his fiction. Filmmaker Webster charts the political and artistic evolution of the law-school dropout and journalist, as his magic-realist novels including "One Hundred Years of Solitude" and “No One Writes to the Colonel," bring global fame, ande he advances to the forefront of Latin America’s struggles against dictatorship and oppression. In Spanish with English subtitles. DCP digital. (BS)
