Price: €14.00


The nar­ra­tive part of ” Gabriel Gar­cia Mar­quez, a witch writ­ing ” is built accord­ing to an appar­ent dis­or­der of time, as it is the very device the writer him­self has used in his nov­els and in : One hun­dred years of soli­tude in par­tic­u­lar. The por­trait of the writer has taken the form of a con­ver­sa­tion with an old friend we haven’t seen for a long time.

This has been made pos­si­ble by the beau­ti­ful inter­view ” Gabo ” him­self accepted to give us in his house in Carta­gena. We have inten­tion­ally empha­sised the real­is­tic basis of witch­craft the author resorted to in his writ­ing. Our aim in doing so, was not to demys­tify their super­nat­ural aspect nor to sub­sribe in one way or another but to try to bet­ter con­vey the so par­tic­u­lar vison of the world he had. Our film is a kind of bridge between the truth of a con­ti­nent made of tales and magic spells, and the life of a man who has been its most faith­ful mouthpiece.
