In August 2017, I chose Camilo Najar —known as Son of Sodom in the social networks, to be the main character of my first feature film. That casting delved around his life, his sexuality, the future he saw for himself, and drugs. A week later, aged 21, he died from a heroin overdose. Who was Son of Sodom?
