WHAT IS “THE FORGETTING THAT WE WILL BE” ABOUT?

‘The forgetfulness that we will be’ is set during the violence that Colombia experienced in the 1980s and much of the 1990s, the era of the great drug lords and paramilitary groups who, with the support of political and military sectors, silenced the voices of those critical of the establishment (human rights defenders, university professors, trade unionists, members and supporters of left-wing political parties and movements).

The film narrates the life of Héctor Abad Gómez from the loving and proud vision of his son Héctor Abad Faciolince, as a kind of tribute to his deceased father, showing us the unconditional love of a father to a son and vice versa.

Héctor Abad Gómez, a doctor and human rights activist, was assassinated by paramilitary groups in Medellín in 1987 for demonstrating about the political and violence problems facing Colombia.
