Memories of My Father (Drama, History)
Columbia’s official submission for the 93rd Academy Awards, “Memories of My Father” comes to Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday, Jan. 3, from Cohen Media Group.
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.
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 bestseller, “Oblivion: A Memoir,” written by Héctor Abad Faciolince, the son of Abad Gómez and one of Colombia’s most acclaimed contemporary authors. The film is presented in Spanish with English subtitles. Bonus features on the release include an interview with Trueba by film historian Annette Insdorf, trailers and making-of featurettes.
