Production: What we know about After Love?
- Vertigo will release the film on at least 20 screens in the U.S. and Canada, with multiple showings in New York, Los Angeles and other major cities (1/1/2023).
- Director Aleem Khan explained, “My desire to tell this story was initially borne out of a curiosity I had around how identity, morality and deception intersect in relationships; even in mature, long lasting and happy ones. After Love is a story about love, it’s about grief, and through Mary’s journey it’s a story that reminds us that it takes more than bravery to love unconditionally; that those who betray us can also have the capacity to heal, and ultimately, to accept that sometimes the hardest thing we must face is ourselves.”
- This is Aleem Khan’s feature debut (1/1/2023).
- 2023 - January: The film was set to Completed status.
