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 immortalized 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 an audio recording with Timothy Conigrave. This documentary uncovers the true story of how Romeo met Romeo; and what happened ever after.
