Directed by Academy-Award® winner Fernando Trueba (BELLE EPOQUE), MEMORIES
OF MY FATHER dramatizes the true life story of Héctor Abad Gómez, (Goya Award
winner Javier Cámara, from Pedro Almodóvar’s TALK TO HER and BAD EDUCATION),
a renowned Colombian doctor and human rights activist in corrupt and chaotic
1970s Medellín, Colombia. A devoted father, Abad Gómez adored his children and
fought against oppression and social inequality at great sacrifice to himself and his
family. Colombia’s official submission for the 93rdAcademy Awards, the film is a
stylish and beautifully shot portrait of a man who dedicated his life to helping others.
MEMORIES OF MY FATHER is based on the international best-seller, OBLIVION: A
MEMOIR, written by Héctor Abad Faciolince, the son of Héctor Abad Gómez and one
of Colombia’s most acclaimed contemporary authors.
