Pittsburgh Premiere
Director: Len Collin | 2016, Ireland, 86 minutes | English

Young love knows no bounds, even in the face of endless obstacles. Larry and Sophie yearn to be alone for just one night, but the evening twists and turns, revealing a cast of characters who are all looking for a little adventure. Part madcap comedy, part endearing love story—Sanctuary is a brave film about the complexities of loving and longing in a world that doesn’t always recognize our need to do so. (Suggested for ages 13+)

“Sanctuary is a hilarious, touching and important film.” —Luke Maxwell, Dublin Inquirer

“…a must-see knockabout comedy that takes a serious look at the rights of the intellectually disabled.” —Tara Brady, Irish Times

Followed by a Q&A with Billy Hartung, executive director of Center for Theater Arts.
