Following on from the hugely successful film Holding the Man, Peccadillo Pictures is thrilled to announce the DVD & VOD release of the documentary REMEMBERING THE MAN – the real life account of the lives, love and loss of long-time partners Timothy Conigrave and John Caleo.
At a prestigious Catholic boys school in Melbourne 1974, Tim Conigrave and John Caleo fell madly in love. Their passionate, tempestuous, operatic romance lasted for 16 years, facing disapproval, temptation, separation, and the looming shadow of the Grim Reaper. Their star cross’d relationship was immortalised in Timothy Conigrave’s memoir Holding the Man, and has been adapted for stage and screen. REMEMBERING THE MAN is a feature length documentary based on a long lost audio recording with Timothy Conigrave. This documentary uncovers the true story of how Romeo met Romeo; and what happened ever after.
