Filmmaker Webster charts the political and artistic evolution of the law-school dropout and journalist, as his magic-realist novels including "One Hundred Years of Solitude" and No One Writes to the Colonel," bring global fame, ande he advances to the forefront of Latin Americas struggles against dictatorship and oppression.
