Alvaro Mutis
Les Éléments du désastre Série-Collection : Un siècle d'écrivains

Yves Billon
2000 - 47 min - Beta numérique - Couleur - France

Alvaro Mutis is the "second" internationally renowned Colombian writer after Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Through they are friends, they have almost nothing in common : tastes, sources of inspiration, style and political opinions.
The film will portray this exceptional man who has surprisingly so much of a European. It will analyse the mysteries of his passion for history. It will try to follow "Maqroll the Gabier " – Mutis puzzling and unlikely double – in the complex world of his nightmarish and raving everyday life.
