“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

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.
