Description Fascinating journey through the life and work of the prestigious Catalan poet Jaime Gil de Biedma, both marked by sexuality and eroticism. Charismatic and somewhat eccentric, brilliant intellectual with extraordinary sensitivity and member of Barcelona's 'gauche divine' in the 60s, Gil de Biedma liked to describe himself as a 'poet of experience' while he suffered dreadfully from the dichotomy strangling him: bourgeois and executive for a multinational by day, communist and homosexual poet by night.

    lo que más me gusta de este trailler es el minuto 0:23, la mirada buscona de un ligue joven. Me encanta.

    Me pregunto si la hipócrita (por decirlo suave) de Espe-Rancia Aguirre, sobrina del divino poeta, habrá visto, o verá algún día esta película... Fantástico Mollà... Inmortal Jaime...

    What Now? Remind Me (2013)

    Joaquim Pinto has been living with HIV and VHC for almost twenty years. What now? is the notebook of a year of clinical studies with toxic, mind altering drugs as yet unapproved. An open and eclectic reflection on time and memory, on epidemics and globalization, on survival beyond all expectations, on dissent and absolute love. In a to-and-fro between the present and past memories, the film is also a tribute to friends departed and those who remain.
