Essential Cinema  Gabriel Garcia Marquez and the Latin Cinematic Imagination

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

Buñuel’s film attacking the Mexican bourgeoisie presents the anti-colonialist themes that Márquez would later explore. Buñuel’s skill with visual metaphor finds reflection in Márquez’s signature magical realism.
