Remembering the Man

Program: SDFF 2017

In the 1970s at a prestigious Catholic boys’ school in Melbourne, arty and flamboyant Tim Conigrave fell madly in love with the star of the school’s football team. From the awkward schoolboy romance to their parents’ efforts to keep them apart — temptation, infidelity and separation — the story evolves. What grips the screen is a raw, gritty and intimate picture as the men reunite stronger than before and eventually realize their courage when they learn both are HIV positive.
