“Keep The Lights On” Director Ira Sachs

By Charlotte Robinson, December 19, 2012
In October we interviewed Director Ira Sachs about his new film KEEP THE LIGHTS ON that premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival & received the Teddy Award for Best Queer Film at the 2012 Berlin Film Festival. The film has been currently playing theaters throughout North America & returns to New York’s Cinema Village at 22 East 12th Street on Friday, December 21st. This is a special event with Sachs participating in a Q & A Friday & Saturday evenings. The film chronicles an emotionally & sexually charged journey of two men in New York City through love, friendship & addiction. Documentary filmmaker Erik (Thure Lindhardt) & closeted lawyer Paul (Zachary Booth, Damages) meet through a casual encounter but soon find a deeper connection & become a couple. Fueled by drugs & sex their decade-long relationship is defined by highs, lows & dysfunctional patterns as Erik struggles to negotiate his own boundaries and dignity while being true to himself. For his lead performance, Thure Lindhardt received a nomination for "Best Breakthrough Actor" at the Gotham Independent Film Awards.
We talked to Ira about his deeply personal film & issues facing our LGBT community in this Exclusive Audio Interview:
