Arts preview: Sundance hit “I Used to be Darker” comes to Wexner Center

By Columbus Alive
From the November 21, 2013 edition

For one night only the Wexner Center will hold a special film event for the affecting and avant-garde indie “I Used to Be Darker.” The Sundance Film Festival hit is a complex look at family relations, the disintegration of love and the potential for new love.

When Taryn (Deragh Campbell), a Northern Irish runaway avoiding her own problems, takes refuge with her cousin Abby (Hannah Gross) and aunt and uncle ( musicians Kim Taylor and Ned Oldham), who’re attempting an amicable divorce, she finds even more complications. Directed by Matt Porterfield (Putty Hill”), recipient of the Wexner Center’s Film/Video Residency Award for 2012-13, “I Used to Be Darker” is a quiet, sensitive character study.

The film will be introduced by Taylor, who will answer questions following the screening. Taylor will also perform a few songs from her latest album, Love’s A Dog.
