The Balcell's Clause is a biographical documentary about Carmen Balcells that explores her struggle to change the publishing business' rules of play, her thirst for power and the birth of the Latin American literary boom led by García Márquez and Vargas Llosa. This documentary seeks to tell the incredible story of one of the most important women in Spanish and world literature, a born fighter who one day left her small home village (200 inhabitants) to take on the world. We will interview famous writers such as Vargas Llosa or Isabel Allende, and friends and acquaintances. We also have exclusive access to the family, the agency archives, her personal diaries and daily recordings.
