2013 Seoul LGBT Film Festival Day 3, Saturday June 8th


10:30 Keep the Lights On (라잇 온 미) This film played last year at the film festival… but I guess it is back? It’s 1997 and New York City is in a state of intense flux when documentary filmmaker Erik Rothman (Thure Lindhardt) first meets Paul Lucy (Zachary Booth), a handsome but closeted lawyer in the publishing field. What begins as a highly charged first encounter soon becomes something much more, and a relationship quickly develops. As the two men start building a home and life together, each continues to privately battle their own compulsions and addictions. A film about sex, friendship, intimacy and most of all, love, Keep the Lights On takes an honest look at the nature of relationships in our times. (IMDB) English with Korean subtitles.
