    The documentary is nominated in the category “Arts Programming”. The International Emmy Award honours international television productions made outside the United States. The winners will be announced in New York on November 21.

    GABO is as much of an intimate portrait of the great writer Gabriel García Márquez as it is a touching film about the power of fantasy. The feature documentary traces Gabo’s biographic landmarks back to his childhood, exploring how the son of a simple telegraphist could become a century-writer, whose works reach beyond his death, inspiring audiences across the world.
