Berlin 2012: 'Keep The Lights On' Wins Teddy Award
The love story between two men in New York stars Thure Lindhardt and Zachary Booth.
BERLIN – Keep The Lights On, a love story about two men in New York City, has won the Teddy Award for the best film with a queer cinema theme at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.
The drama from director Ira Sachs (Married Life) stars Zachary Booth (Damages) and Danish star Thure Lindhardt (Flame and Citron).
The plot has the two men the documentary film maker Erik (Lindhardt) and the closeted lawyer Paul (Booth) meeting in a casual encounter that soon turns more serious. The film traces their relationship together over the next many years, through all its highs and lows. The film premiered in Sundance.
The Teddy Award, now in its 26th year, is the leading film festival honor for queer cinema.
