Memphis-bred filmmaker Ira Sachs (The Delta, Forty Shades of Blue, Married Life) has returned this year with his fourth feature, Keep the Lights On, a decade-spanning love story that also deals with drug addiction. The feature, which Sachs co-wrote with Mauricio Zacharias, has done well on the festival circuit, debuting to strong notices at the Sundance Film Festival in January, winning the Teddy Award as best LGBT-themed feature at the Berlin International Film Festival in February, and winning the Grand Jury Award for Outstanding U.S. Dramatic feature last month at Outfest, the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.
