Q&A with the director and the leading man after the screening.
The latest film starring Tony Award winner Alan Cumming, our guest at the 2016 TLVFest, arrives in Tel Aviv following its world premiere at the London LGBT Film Festival this past March.
It is a New York-themed cinematic creation that deals in a theme even AIDS advocacy groups shy from: post trauma experienced by survivors of the AIDS epidemic.
Sam is an artist living in a loft filled with mementos and memories of his past lovers, who fell victim to the AIDS crisis of the 1980s and 1990s. Despite the years that have passed, he has not yet gotten over their loss. An encounter with a young man named Braeden is set to change his world. An affair ensues, but a secret Braeden keeps hidden is bound to have an impact on Sam.
Charming Zachary Booth, whom audiences will remember from TV show Damages and the charming gay film Keep the Lights On, plays the young, captivating Braeden, while Cumming is at his most convincing as Sam. Supporting actors include several well-known NYC personas such as Justin Bond (of Shortbus) and artist
Joey Arias, who was a guest of TLVFest in 2010.
Both director Vincent Cagliostro and leading man Zachary Booth are guests of the festival.
