12 Sep 03 CINEFORUM “EL OLVIDO QUE SEREMOS”. SEPTEMBER 22, 18:30H
Fall begins and AMUM looks back at the cinema with a film loaded with nostalgia, drama and admiration. A tribute to a father, to a singular man who will always be present thanks to a great book that becomes an image in a wonderful film.
The beginning of a sad poem attributed to Borges inspired Héctor Abad Faciolince to give a title to a book, “The forgetfulness that we will be”, full of love and tenderness. The extraordinary film by Fernando Trueba deals with that forgetfulness and that memory that lasts to the beat of memory where, following the narrative thread of the novel, he puts on screen the life and death of Héctor Abad Gómez, a heroic, brave, vital being , to whom he gives life masterly form, (that accent of Medellín, the “paisa”, perfectly obtained, that expressiveness, that knowing how to be), the brilliant and versatile actor Javier Cámara.
We have to see it. We wait for you.
The film is available on the Netflix platform and can be seen on the day and at the time that best suits.
The debate will be on Zoom on September 22 at 6:30 p.m.
