GABO, La Magia De Lo Real
Director: Justin Webster
Production Company: JWProductions
How did a boy from a backward town on the Caribbean coast become a writer who won the hearts of millions, from the poorest to the most powerful political leaders, and whose works changed our perception of reality?
The answer is the incredible story of Gabriel García Márquez, the 1982 Nobel Prize winner for Literature, author of the globally popular, and critically-acclaimed masterpiece 100 Years of Solitude, who grew up in the poverty and violence of northern Colombia, and propelled by a love of life and a sensual, magical sensibility, followed a path that made him not only into a pioneer of life-affirming literature, but the forefront of the political struggles of the 70s and 80s, through his militant journalism and his friendships with political leaders such as Fidel Castro and Bill Clinton.
The film is a story about the incredible power of human imagination, which follows the interwoven threads of Gabriel García Márquez’s life and work – “Gabo” to all of Latin America – with the narrative tension of an investigation.

Homage to Scotland || FEATURE
“Homage to Scotland” is a profound human portrait of the political process in Scotland — which will vote for independence from the UK in a historic referendum on September 18 — through the eyes of three main characters: Jenny Lindsay, a poet committed to the ‘Yes’ campaign, David Torrance, a young and skeptical journalist, and Sir Tom Devine, the most read historian in the country, considered the leading authority on the history of modern Scotland and author of the famous book “The Scottish Nation”.
The documentary follows these characters in their personal and professional lives, in a context shaped by parliamentary debates in Edinburgh and London and the key moments of the referendum campaign. On a trip across Scotland —from Shetland, the oil industrial center, to the University of Glasgow, where a mock election was held, passing through the legendary battlefield of Culloden and London, where the government defends unity — this documentary lets us into how Scots approach and experience this debate.
The three Scottish characters of “Homage to Scotland” have very different points of view on the political process affecting the country, but they all agree on the need for rational and democratic debate. Throughout the documentary, they and the people who surround them, mature their views as the referendum date approaches. A film that helps, ultimately, to understand how a process — about to become a political reference in Europe — is lived.
