Storyboard Text

  • Let's talk about you in the big screen! Where did your fondness for the cinema come from?
  • I think it was sparked by my grandfather; he used to take me to watch the films of Tom Mix when I was a kid back in Aracataca.
  • Aww, that's cute! And what was your first work in the cinema world?
  • In 1954, I directed and wrote the script of the shortfilm The Blue Lobster. And I loved it! So, after that, I decided to study in the Centro Sperimentale Di Cinematografia in Roma.
  • And you kept working in movies as I see. You were the scriptwriter of several Mexican films in the 1960s, like The Golden Cockerel, Time to Die and Dangerous Game.
  • Yeah, I had a lot of work to do at that time.
  • And years later, you founded Cuba’s International School of Cinema and Television, which I think is your fundamental contribution to film.
  • Yes, in that school I had the opportunity to help a lot of young Latin American filmmakers to reach their dreams. It is probably the most beautiful part of my career.
  • And then, some of your books —like Chronicle of a Death Foretold, No One Writes to the Colonel, and Love in the Time of Cholera— were taken to the big screen! How do you feel about that?
  • I have to admit it, I'm not very happy with the  results. I don't think they were good enough.
  • And what about One Hundred Years of Solitude? Are you going to make a movie based on it?
  • I promise you that book will never appear as a movie.  I don't want One Hundred Years of Solitude tolose its essence. Macondo will stay in the paper, and in the imagination of the readers.
