After garnering the FIPRESCI prize at Locarno and playing at the New York Film Festival earlier in the fall, "What Now? Remind Me" has officially been picked up for North American distribution by the Cinema Guild. The intimate yet expansive documentary follows filmmaker Joaquim Pinto, who has been living with HIV for the past twenty years and undergoing various medical treatments, as he reflects on his life and coping with his disease.

“Having worked as a producer and sound engineer for the likes of Raul Ruiz, Manoel de Oliveira, João César Monteiro and André Techiné, Joaquim Pinto demonstrates his own mastery as a filmmaker with ‘What Now? Remind Me,’ a brilliant, expansive first-person documentary on art, love, and above all, survival,” commented Ryan Krivoshey of the Cinema Guild. “This is a truly unique and special film and we are excited to be working with Joaquim and Joana on its release.”

The Cinema Guild are planning a theatrical release for the film in 2014.
