Lyda Kuth’s turn to direct
When “Love and Other Anxieties” had its area premiere at the Independent Film Festival Boston, a who’s who of the local film world packed the Somerville Theatre. They came in support of the documentary’s first-time director, Lyda Kuth. The name probably means little to most movie audiences. But for New England documentary filmmakers, it often means the difference between taking a risk or not, between finishing a film or not. Kuth is the executive director of LEF Foundation New England.
