Strand Releasing Acquires Matt Porterfield's Acclaimed Sundance Drama 'I Used to Be Darker'

Strand Releasing has acquired all U.S. distribution rights to Matt Porterfield's "I Used to Be Darker," which premiered at Sundance this year before playing at Berlin and winning Best Narrative Feature at the Atlanta Film Festival.

The deal was negotiated between Strand Releasing's Jon Gerrans and the film’s rep, George Rush.

The follow up to Porterfield's critically acclaimed sophomore feature "Putty Hill," the film is another Baltimore set feature, with Kim Taylor and Ned Oldham portraying two musicians struggling to end their marriage on graceful terms for the sake of their college freshman daughter Abby (Hannah Gross).

Strand will give the film a theatrical release in the U.S. in the fall.

    I thought this had been acquired by Monterey Media?
