I Used to Be Darker
dir. Matthew Porterfield / USA 2013 / 90’


Deragh Campbell, Hannah Gross, Ned Oldham, Kim Taylor

Film description

Every end connects magically to a beginning. Adolescent Taryn becomes convinced of this when she travels from Ireland to the United States, in pursuit of love, which turns out to be a meaningless affair without the willing participation of her lover. Although Taryn quickly discovers that this transient romance will have serious consequences, she has no intention of returning home. Holed up with an aunt and her uncle’s daughter, she contemplates the love-hate relationship between adults – a couple on the edge of divorce. When they survive this breakdown, she finds a moment of pause. A moment of trauma, withdrawal and apathy before the next struggle for happiness. Where can it be found, if old road signs have led us astray and new directions on the road of life have not yet been erected?
