It intimately tells the story of a good man, the Colombian doctor Héctor Abad Gómez, a charismatic social leader and family man, a prominent doctor and human rights activist in the polarized and violent Medellín of the 70s.


“Fernando’s best film has been true in years. It is a passionate song overflowing with the family. It penetrates as the footage progresses, almost without you noticing because it tells, and tells it well, one of those lives that it is necessary to tell and remember”

In the spring of 2020, with the world completely paralyzed and film festivals canceled, the Cannes Festival wanted to announce the films that would have been part of its edition that year, while also awarding them the “Cannes stamp”. One of those privileged movies was ‘The forgetfulness that we will be‘, the last film of Fernando Trueba, winner of the Goya for Best Ibero-American Film in the last edition.

A film made from the love and admiration of a son for his father. And it is based on the acclaimed novel by Héctor Abad Faciolince, which talks about his father, Héctor Abad Gómez, a renowned doctor and human rights activist who was brutally murdered in the 70s in Colombia.

His family life was vital and creative. A professor of medicine, Abad was the father of five girls and a boy, whom he educated in tolerance, creativity and love, despite the violence and political tensions that had paralyzed Medellín in the 70s.

In ‘The forgetfulness that we will be’ we meet Héctor Abad Gómez -interpreted by the great Javier Cámara, including a Colombian accent-, a charismatic social leader and family man. He was characterized by his devotion to his family and his great concern for the degrading ways of life of the less favored classes. A concern that led him to actively fight against class differences in his country. He would end up being assassinated in the middle of the street for showing too much of the weaknesses and miseries of Colombia and for fear that he would unleash a revolution of the Colombian people
