Remembering The Man
A documentary about the true story of Tim Conigrave and John Caleo. An award winning story of love, loss and the AIMS pandemic. 'Remembering The Man' is a feature length documentary that explores the course of Tim and John's tumultuous relationship: their awkward school romance; their parents' efforts to keep them apart; temptation; infidelity and separation; how they came back together stronger than before; and finally the courage they had to find when they learnt they were both HIV positive.
In 1995, Timothy Conigrave's memoir "Holding the Man" was published. The book became an instant classic and has been adapted for the stage and screen. But who were the men at the heart of the book? Why has the story of these star-cross'd Romeos become such a seminal account of the AIDS pandemic? Through Tim's voice, intimate interviews with friends and colleagues and unprecedented access to archival footage and family photos, 'Remembering The Man' paints a raw, gritty and intimate picture.
