Winnipeger Anthony Johnston, Co-writer, Co-producer and star of After Louie, will be in attendance to answer audience questions after the film.
After Louie follows Sam (Alan Cumming), an artist and activist from ACT UP who lived through the early years of HIV/AIDS --- a man scarred and still struggling with survivor's guilt. Cemented into an oppressive past, he is bewildered by a younger generation of carefree gay men with their uninhibited use of social media, sexting, and seeming political indifference. But when he meets the seductive young Braeden (Zachary Booth) at a bar late one night, their pants quickly come down and, eventually so does Sam's ossified guard. As the pair become increasingly intimate, an intergenerational relationship blossoms between them --- one capable of reawakening Sam's artistic soul and reviving his wilted heart.
Presentation of After Louie is sponsored by RBC.
