Llega Putty Hill

Este viernes se estrena “Putty Hill” en NYC. Es un filme hermoso y lo recomiendo profundamente. No me cabe la menor duda que su director, Matt Porterfield, es un verdadero autor. “Putty Hill” estuvo en mi lista de las mejores del 2010.Esto es lo que escribí de ella cuando se dio en el BAM Cinema Fest.

Como parte de los eventos de apertura del filme este fin de semana hay una serie de charlas con Porterfield al final de cada presentación de la cinta. Estoy invitado participar de una de esas charlas. Así que vayan a ver el filme y después se queden al Q&A!

En otras charlas van a estar el crítico de The New Yorker, Richard Brody, y el legendario cineasta Jem Cohen.

No se olviden, este sábado 19 de febrero a las 5 pm (la charla es después, a las 6:30 pm) en el Cinema Village (22 East 12th Street, New York, NY 10003)

Aquí está toda la información:

A message from the filmmakers of PUTTY HILL, and the line-up of weekend events:

We are excited to announce that exactly a year to the day from our World Premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, we are kicking off Putty Hill‘s national theatrical release courtesy of the Cinema Guild. Our run will begin at Cinema Vilage in New York City, and director Matt Porterfield will be on hand opening weekend along with the crew. We are bringing along some friends and supporters to help us launch our release, including Richard Brody (The New Yorker), Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) Jem Cohen (Chain, Instrument), and Chris Keating (Yeasayer). We will be hosting after parties each night of our opening weekend, some with Putty Hill photos on display in large format, behind-the-scenes footage, and top Baltimore bands. Putty Hill‘s lead Sky Ferriera, who has a forthcoming digital EP March 22 courtesy of Capitol Records, will also be on hand for our opening night. Please see our full line-up of opening weekend events below.
