Authors: Rocco, Alessandro
Issue Date: 2003
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: García Márquez has always been much involved in cinema production and direction and in screenplay writing. He studied in Cinecittà School where he met Cesare Zavattini and become his affectionate fan. His first important screenpaly was "Tiempo de morir", written for the young director Arturo Ripstein, in Mexico 1965. This work shows how much Sophocles, and specially his "Oedipus the King", has influenced the Colombian writer, as it is very clear in his famous novel "Crónica de una muerte anunciada" (1981). More recently, García Márquez has made a new adaptation of Sophocles' tragedy for a film directed by Jorge Alí Triana, entitled "Edipo Alcalde" (1998), where he tries to analyse the Colombian "guerrilla" war through the ancient Greek metaphors.
