YSFF17 Opening Screening: Little Men

Join us for the opening screening of the Yale Student Film Festival. Stay afterwards for a Q&A with director Ira Sachs ’87. 

When 13-year-old Jake’s (Theo Taplitz) grandfather dies, his family moves from Manhattan back into his father’s Brooklyn home. There, Jake befriends the charismatic Tony (Michael Barbieri), whose single, Chilean mother Leonor (Paulina Garcia) runs the dress shop downstairs. When Jake’s parents Brian (Greg Kinnear) and Kathy (Jennifer Ehle) ask Leonor to pay a higher rent — and a feud ignites between the adults — the boys take an oath of silence against their parents in protest. Directed by Ira Sachs (Love is Strange, Keep the Lights On, Forty Shades of Blue) with his trademark humanism and insight, Little Men is the story of a life defining friendship amid family turmoil, and one of the best reviewed American films in years.

Sachs was born in Memphis, Tennessee. His films include The Delta (1997), Forty Shades of Blue (2005), Married Life (2007), Keep the Lights On (2012), and Love Is Strange (2014). His newest film, Little Men, premiered at Sundance in 2016. In addition, Sachs is executive director of Queer/Art/Film, a non-profit that fosters relationships between established and emerging LGBTQ filmmakers.
