ComingSoon is excited to debut an exclusive clip from Memories of My Father, the Colombian drama directed by Fernando Trueba and written by David Trueba, based on the book El Olvido Que Seremos by Hector Abad Faciolince. The film opened on November 18 in New York and Miami and is set to be released on November 25 in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
According to the movie’s summary, Hector Abad Gomez was a well-known doctor and human rights activist in the divisive and violent Medell n of the 1970s. The film is based on the book of the same name, Oblivion: A Memoir. The narrative describes the lives of the doctor, a father who cares about both his children and kids from less privileged backgrounds.
The location is your home, where you may feel the energy and creativity that come from an education built on tolerance and love. Nothing suggests that one of his daughters may succumb to dreadful cancer. Hector will devote himself wholeheartedly to the cause of enlightening him about an intolerable society that will not only not listen to him but will also persecute him in an effort to silence him out of sadness and wrath at the loss of an outstanding creature. Hector Abad Faciolince, one of the best writers in modern Colombia, tells us this intimate tale through the eyes of his father’s only son.
