Gabo: The Creation of Gabriel García Márquez
German (Germany) Spanish
How did a boy from a humble town on the Caribbean coast become one of the world's most important writers, who conquered the hearts of millions of people?
Gabriel García Márquez, known as "Gabo", achieved world fame with his novel "A Hundred Years of Solitude" (1967). With a circulation of 50 million copies translated into 35 languages, his work is considered the most important Spanish language novel after Cervantes' "Don Quixote".
Juan Gabriel Vásquez, writer and admirer of García Márquez, sets out to find traces of Gabo, whose works continue to delight a world audience even after his death.
