TIME TO DIE

"Released widely in 1966 to critical acclaim throughout Mexico, Tiempo de morir (Time to Die) marked an auspicious directorial debut for a then 22-year-old Arturo Ripstein. The film, shot in black and white, was co-written by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Carlos Fuentes, two writers who would eventually achieve near mythical status as internationally acknowledged literary giants." William Alexander Yankes and Abel Salas, Brooklyn & Boyle
