The Supreme Uneasiness: Incessant Portrait of Fernando Vallejo

  • Colombia
Audio Tracks 

Freely expressing his loves and hates, controversial Colombian writer Fernando Vallejo (living in Mexico) breaks with an ingrained literary tradition: that of the omniscient writer who sees and knows everything. The film not only covers his literary output but also his many interests: film, music, science and politics. Made with the full support and participation of the author, it provides a portrait of one of the best Spanish-language writers.
