“One thing I know from hav­ing grad­u­ated from col­lege, no one told me how hard it was go­ing to be,” Sachs said. “I was taken by sur­prise in fig­ur­ing out who I was as an adult and as a pro­fes­sional artist.”

He said his talk may em­pha­size “how im­por­tant it is to build and sus­tain a

com­mu­nity. You think you can do ev­ery­thing on your own, and it turns out you can’t.”

Sachs’ lat­est film, “Lit­tle Men,” about teenage friends in Brook­lyn whose bond is tested when their fam­i­lies fall out, de­buted this year at the Sun­dance Film Fes­ti­val and is set to open in lim­ited re­lease in the­aters on Aug. 5. It likely will reach Mem­phis in the early fall.
