  • Production

    Four took over five years to make and the film started several times before it was actually made. Sanchez met Christopher Shinn in 2003 while he was working for an online magazine and was assigned to interview Shinn. Sanchez had read all of Shinn's plays as research for the interview, which is how he first came to read Shinn's play, Four. Sanchez wanted to option Four right away, but another filmmaker had already optioned it. A year later, the other filmmaker did not renew the option on the play, so Sanchez stepped in.

    To raise money for the film, Sanchez and his producer, Christine Giorgio, were among some of the first artists to use the crowdfunding website, Kickstarter in December 2009. They successfully raised nearly $20,000 for their initial campaign.

    Film director, and playwright, Neil LaBute, executive produced the film along with renowned photographer, Allen Frame.

    Themes

    The film is a requiem for loneliness, conformity and desire quietly hidden in the everyday norms of suburban American life and touches on several cultural boundaries, including sexuality, class and race. Three of the film's four main characters are people of color.

    About Four Sanchez said:

    I've had so many people in the business tell me that people here and abroad do not want to watch serious films about people of color. It’s really fucked up. I think it’s changing...because people, real moviegoers, are sort of starved to see their lives reflected back to them in the cinema.

    Release

    The film was released on September 13, 2013.
