Description

MEMORIES OF MY FATHER

Memories of My Father describes the life of Héctor Abad Gomez, a doctor and a human rights activist concerned with both his own children and the children of the underprivileged classes in the violent 1970s in Medellin, Colombia. At his home, you can breathe the vitality and creativity that are the result of a progressive education based on tolerance and love. But driven by sadness and rage when a terrible cancer takes the life of one of his daughters, Héctor devotes himself to the social and political causes of the time, without regard to his personal safety. This is an intimate story seen through the eyes of his only son, Héctor Abad Faciolince, one of the most outstanding writers in contemporary Colombia. Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Fernando Trueba (Belle Époque) and starring the wonderful Spanish actor Javier Cámara (Talk To Her), the film was Colombia's official entry for Best International Feature Film at the 93rd Academy Awards and was the winner of the Best Iberoamerican Film at the 2021 Goya Awards. (Colombia, 2022, 136min., In Spanish with English subtitles, NR | Dir. Fernando Trueba)
