Putty Hill
Dir. Matt Porterfield | 87min | 2010

A young man dies of a heroin overdose in an abandoned house in Baltimore. On the eve of his funeral, family and friends gather to commemorate his life. Their shared memories paint a portrait of a community hanging in the balance, skewed by poverty, city living, and a generational divide, united in their pursuit of a new American Dream.

The follow-up to Matt Porterfield's acclaimed directorial debut HAMILTON, PUTTY HILL reveals another cross-section of Baltimore's dispossessed. Combining documentary-style interviews with narrative techniques, PUTTY HILL is a realist film presented in a wholly unique way. Improvised dialogue blends with script to create a natural, understated, and focused picture of a community on the fringes of society.  

"Nothing this inspiring has emerged from the American indie scene in a long time." -- Mar Diestro-Dópido, Sight & Sound

"****" -- Roger Ebert
