Next Tuesday: Screen Test with Matt Porterfield

Matt Porterfield’s pensive and rich films Hamilton and Putty Hill have established him as one of Baltimore’s preeminent filmmakers. Maryland Morning is excited to welcome Porterfield to this month’s Screen Test for a conversation and a screening of his work. The Screen Test is on Tuesday, November 23 at 7 p.m. at The Windup Space in Baltimore’s Station North neighborhood.
Maryland Morning arts and culture ace Tom Hall will talk with Porterfield in front of a live audience about the early influence of nature documentaries and suburban Baltimore on his work, about how he found film in New York and why he came back to Baltimore, and about the two very different screenplays he’s currently writing.
Then we’ll screen a selection of Porterfield’s work, including clips from Hamilton, which a New Yorker critic named one of the best films of the aughts; a Coney Island-inspired study; and the music videos he made for local bands Dope Body and Double Dagger. We’ll save time at the end for audience questions and conversation. As always, the Screen Test is free and open to the public.
