Love and Other Anxieties

My friend Lyda Kuth’s film Love and Other Anxieties played to a packed house yesterday at the Independent Film Festival Boston. Beautiful and heartfelt, Love and Other Anxieties is a personal exploration about the meaning of love and long-term commitment.

You can see in the above photo the line for Love and Other Anxieties stretched the length of a city block, wrapping around the corner, and ending behind the theatre.

Arriving early allowed a few minutes to have fun with street photography. My x100 is terrific for photographing people without being noticed and for the most part, passers-by don’t mind even if they do notice. Davis Square was teeming with people and the restaurants were jam packed.

With 98 films playing over the course of a week, and the greatest number of films shown during the weekend, I was impressed with how well organized is the festival–run entirely by volunteers.

I was hoping to take a snapshot of Lyda with her family after the film, but we were hurried out of the theatre to make way for the next film. Lyda was surrounded by a throng of well-wishers and friends and I was so happy to see her happiness. Congratulations to Lyda for the successful launch of her beautiful and touching film, first of many I hope!

  2. Thanks Donna–super wonderful day yesterday. Hard Days Night–wow! What a great theatre. There were so many people in the Square yesterday and all were there to enjoy the festival–so good to see. I loved the old Woolworth’s in Downtown Crossing, next to Filene’s Basement and Jordan Marsh.

  3. Glad to hear it was packed. I really wanted to go, but had a charity event to attend. I heard her interviewed on NPR (I think) and she was great, very interesting.
