GABO is as much of an intimate portrait of the great writer Gabriel García Márquez as it is a touching film about the power of fantasy. The feature documentary traces Gabo’s biographic landmarks back to his childhood, exploring how the son of a simple telegraphist could become a century-writer, whose works reach beyond his death, inspiring audiences across the world.
