I Used To Be Darker: a new film by Matt Porterfield
A long time ago, in the days of Myspace, I sent Matt my music, early solo recordings, because I thought what he was making was really beautiful. I was lucky enough to meet him a few times in New York and since then I have followed his work, as it’s grown to expand both visually and narratively. I am most excited for his latest film, I Used To Be Darker, not yet out, which centers around the lives of a musician couple and their family. The website offers an enticing trailer and great behind the scenes photos and his other films, Hamilton and Putty Hill, are also worth checking out.
