BACK TO BALTIMORE
Thursday, September 28th, 2017

The American director Matthew Porterfield along with the actor McCaul Lombardi gave a press conference yesterday to discuss their film Sollers Point, which was screened in the Official Section. Sollers Point tells the story of Keith (Lombardi), a small-time drug dealer under house arrest at the home of his father, played by Jim Belushi, in Baltimore. He re-enters a community scarred by unemployment, neglect and deeply entrenched segregation. There, he pushes back against his surrounding limitations as he tries to find something to give his life new meaning. Porterfield wanted to make quite clear that his film wasn’t a social critique but an honest portrayal of the social reality in this city. Lombardi said that he was especially pleased to play the role of Keith, because he had grown up in Baltimore so it was a world he was really familiar with.
