The protagonist of the following article is not a historical person, an artist or the
hero of a novel. The protagonist of this article is a work. A work that belongs
to the genre of testimonial literature and that has the extraordinary power to
reach the hearts of readers. The main character of the story, The forgetfulness
that we will be, written by Héctor Abad Faciolince, is the author’s father, the
hygienist doctor, Héctor Abad Gómez, assassinated on August 25, 1987, for his
civil commitment in Colombia in the eighties. So, in addition to Dr. Gómez, the
story of his family and Colombia itself become the protagonists of a work that,
published in November 2005, by the end of that year had been reprinted three
times, reaching more than forty editions and more than 200 thousand copies
sold in his country. The story has just reached the cinema: fifteen years after its
publication, The Forgetful We Will Be has become a film, directed by Fernando
Trueba, spanish director and screenwriter, that with this film, starring the actor
Javier Cámara, has won the Goya 2021 award for best foreign film in spanish.
