Putty Hill featuring a live Skype Q&A with director Porterfield!
A fascinating and beautiful hybrid of documentary and narrative, Putty Hill is director Matt Porterfield's remarkably perceptive film about life in working class Baltimore. In it, a (real-life) community gathers to remember the life of a (fictional) boy.
"Extraordinary. If there is an independent cinema, this movie is it, and if there's a new director, here he is." (Richard Brody, The New Yorker)
