I am Ira Sachs, co-writer and director of the new film, LOVE IS STRANGE. Ask me anything!
Hi, my name is Ira Sachs. I'm a filmmaker based in New York City, and I've been making independent films since 1989, including The Delta, Sundance Grand Jury-prize winning Forty Shades of Blue, and the highly autobiographical Keep the Lights On. My most recent film is LOVE IS STRANGE, starring John Lithgow and Alfred Molina as a long-term couple who get married after 39 years together, and as a result lose both a job, and their apartment. The film also stars Marisa Tomei, and a host of wonderful NYC stage actors, including Cheyenne Jackson, Harriet Harris, Christina Kirk, and Adriane Lenox.
I am also the founder of two arts programs in NYC, Queer/Art/Film and Queer/Art/Mentorship, both of which were created to foster dialogue and conversation between queer artists from different disciplines and generations.
Okay, thank you all for engaging. I've enjoyed the conversation, and my first visit to Reddit. Have a great day one and all!
