It was fun doing the WJZ interviews with Matt Porterfield this morning- WJZ’s Ron Matz is so good at this, and it gave me and Matt a chance to catch up- Matt’s been travelling nonstop as an invited guest at festivals in places like Copenhagen and Buenos Aires since the premier of PUTTY HILL at the great Berlin Film Festival in February. I can’t wait for the screenings here. As Matt takes his place alongside Baltimore’s other great film artists- Levinson, Waters, Simon, all very different but deeply fascinated by specific parts of Baltimore- it’s worth asking: what is it about this city that continues to lure filmmakers to its neighborhoods?  If you go to the WJZ website, click on Morning Edition at the bottom, you can see the interview, or just click on the link:
