As part of our LGBT Film Series, we chat with Sasha Alcoloumbre, the writer, director and producer of the short film Three Months.
About the film
A romance between two young men, Marc and Andreas, oscillates when Marc reveals belatedly that he is HIV positive and undetectable. After distancing himself, Andreas comes to the understanding that his health was not put at risk, and begins to entertain the idea of being in a mixed-status relationship. Although they reconcile, will they be able to move forward romantically?

About Sasha Alcoloumbre
After completing his undergraduate studies in Liberal Arts at Concordia University in Montreal, Sasha spent some time living in Paris, France, where he worked in two notable contemporary art institutions: the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain and the Palais de Tokyo. A cinephile and art lover from as early as his teenage years, Sasha’s hunger for the arts grew tenfold while living in France.
During this period of time, his profound desire to make films galvanized him to write a first version of Three Months. In the spring of 2018, a few months after returning to Montreal, and with no prior experience in the industry, he directed and produced this film. He is currently in development on multiple projects.
