Film Maker Discusses LGBT Roles in Gay Times


Film maker Sebastian Lelio meets up with the current issue of veteran and respected journal Gay Times. The heterosexual film maker has a new movie out depicting the relationship between two lesbian women coming to terms with their sexualities in an Orthodox Jewish community. The movie will star Rachel Weisz. Lelio tells Gay Times that he is a firm supporter of queer politics, and that he enjoys making movies about our communities, with recent screen offerings including a heartwarming transgender tale. However, he also says that he does not feel that artists should be compelled to hire LGBT people to play LGBT roles. IF this happens, he says, art is betrayed and it is a “symptom of fascism”. Gay Times December issue is out now and available from all good newsagents and alternative bookstores.
