MEMORIES OF MY FATHER aka FORGOTTEN WE'LL BE
[EL OLVIDO QUE SEREMOS]
With this intimate historical drama, Oscar®-winning Spanish director Fernando Trueba (BELLE EPOQUE, CHICO & RITA) adapts Héctor Abad Faciolince's popular memoir about his father, Héctor Abad Gómez, a Colombian doctor, professor and human rights activist who rose to prominence in the polarized, violent climate of Medellín during the 1970s. Expertly played by Javier Cámara (TALK TO HER, THE YOUNG POPE), Gómez is family man loved by all, but deeply worried about his nation's inadequate public health and welfare systems. When cancer claims the life of one of his beloved daughters, Gómez devotes himself completely to the social and political causes of the time, at great personal risk.
