Ira Sachs’ critically acclaimed drama Love Is Strange will open the sixth edition of KASHISH Mumbai International Queer Film Festival – South Asia’s biggest and India’s only mainstream LGBT film festival. With remarkable performances from John Lithgow and Alfred Molina, this is also the Indian Première of the movie. Love Is Strange had premièred at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The movie will be screened at 9.15 pm at the iconic Liberty Cinema following the opening ceremony on May 27, 2015 which will be flagged off by Sai Paranjpye and Celina Jaitly.
Festival director Sridhar Rangayan said: “We are honoured and delighted to open the 6th edition of KASHISH with the film Love Is Strange. It is a film that resonates strongly with the festival’s theme: ‘Reaching Out, Touching Hearts’. The two incredible actors portray myriad emotions of love, anguish, separation and hope with such consummate ease that you immerse into their poignant love story that transcends sexual orientation, age, language and ethnicity. Ira Sachs is a master at portraying human emotions and weaving it with social attitudes and cultural contexts. ‘Love Is Strange’ is a fabulous journey forward of an amazing filmmaker.”
