RETURN
Winner of the Teddy Award at Berlin 2011. 'Keep the Lights On' chronicles an emotional and sexually charged journey between two men in New York City through love, friendship, and addiction. Documentary filmmaker Erik (acclaimed Danish actor Thure Lindhardt in his first leading role in a U.S. film) and closeted lawyer Paul (Zachary Booth) meet through a casual encounter, but soon find a deeper connection and become a couple. Individually and together, they are risk takers, compulsive, and fuelled by drugs and sex. BBFC Certified 18 - Contains hard drug use, strong sex and sex references. ✮✮✮✮ "An uncommonly sensitive and mature drama" - Mike McCahill, The Guardian "My own film, a fictional re-telling of a very troubled relationship between two men, from the first to, possibly, the last. I pick it because it fits with, and has been inspired by, the kind of personal filmmaking that infuses the rest of the collection" - Ira Sachs
