Essential Cinema  Gabriel Garcia Marquez and the Latin Cinematic Imagination

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Garcia Márquez’s ERENDIRA was a major inspiration for last year’s award-winning film about a gang war among rural indigenous tribes in Colombia.


The corrosive effects of the drug trade have been brought to tragic life on screens both big and small so often that there doesn’t seem much new could be said on the topic. That’s where the film Birds of Passage vividly proves otherwise.” – Cary Darling, Houston Chronicle
