After Louie (BQFF 2018)
March 12, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:40 pm UTC+10
“The film’s passion, insights and feeling frequently hit home. A thoughtful contemplation of what it means to be gay today.” –
Sarah Ward, Screen Daily
After Louie follows Sam (Alan Cumming), an artist and activist from ACT UP who lived through the early years of HIV/AIDS — a man scarred and still struggling with survivor’s guilt. Cemented into an oppressive past, he is bewildered by a younger generation of carefree gay men with their uninhibited use of social media, sexting, and seeming political indifference. But when he meets the seductive young Braeden (Zachary Booth), an intergenerational relationship blossoms between them – one capable of reawakening Sam’s artistic soul and reviving his wilted heart.
