Uncover the incredible story of Gabriel García Márquez, winner of a Nobel Prize in Literature and author of deservedly celebrated classics including 100 Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. A law-school dropout and political journalist who grew up in the poverty and violence of northern Colombia, García Márquez became globally celebrated for his sensual, magical and epic work. Former US president Bill Clinton, former Colombian president César Gaviria and more are among interviewees celebrating his legacy in this breathtaking doc. “What matters in life is not what happens to you,” said García Márquez, “But what you remember and how you remember it.”

The event includes a post-screening Skype Q&A with director Justin Webster. We encourage you to join us for this screening. Watch Twitter and Facebook for ticket giveaways!
