Vincent Gagliostro Talks Activism, New York and France’s Art Scene, and his New Film ‘After Louie’ Starring Alan Cumming

In 2015, Vincent Gagliostro met Anthony Johnston, a Brooklyn-based writer and performer, and together they wrote the script for After Louie. In June 2016, filming of After Louie commenced with Gagliostro directing. The film stars Alan Cumming as a 55-year-old New York artist in limbo, haunted by his past as an AIDS activist and disillusioned with the present state of affairs of the younger gay community that doesn’t acknowledge the existence of AIDS. The film also stars Zachary Booth, Justin Vivian Bond, Patrick Breen, Sarita Choudhury, Wilson Cruz, David Drake, Anthony Johnston, Everett Quinton, and Joey Arias.

After Louie premiered on March 17 in London at BFI /British Film Institute Flare Film Festival with three sold-out screenings and will tour other international film festivals in 2017.
