Product Description

If you have read the original and much-beloved memoir, Holding the Man, or seen the play based on it, and then the movie adaptation, you will know many aspects of the story of Timothy Conigrave and John Caleo. Now comes this award winning documentary about the two lovers, filled with intimate interviews with friends and colleagues, and unprecedented access to archival footage and family photos.

In the 1970s, at a prestigious Catholic boys school in Melbourne, arty and flamboyant Tim Conigrave fell madly in love with John Caleo the star of the school’s football team. ''Remembering the Man'' explores the course of the Tim and John’s tumultuous relationship: their awkward schoolboy 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's memoir, ‘Holding the Man’, was published and became an instant classic. This documentary reveals much more about these two lovers, whose lives and deaths have become such a seminal account of the AIDS pandemic in Australia.
