Gabo y el Cine is José Luis García Agraz’ 2016 Mexican documentary about the influence of film on Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez.
Gabo y el Cine
A Mexican film about a Colombian author makes sense a couple of ways. First Mexicans and Colombians enjoy one another’s culture. For example, Colombian gangsters like Mariachi and Mexicans love Cumbia. Second, the Magical Realism of Márquez is related to Surrealism which is always present in Mexico.
