NORTH OF NOWHERE
A short film by Mat Randol and Riley Brown
wanted to bring everyone to my neighborhood, my block, inside my house, see the conditions I had to grow in,
meet my family. It’s a special moment for me
o be able to go back to where I grew up and put together this visual for the people
North of Nowhere is
one of my more powerful moments as an artist
Portland artist, Mat Randol
teams up with film maker, Riley Brown to bring forth, North of Nowhere
– a short film broadcasting the real life triumph’s and hardships of making it out of Portland, through life, and into the music business. With features from Mat’s closest friends and family,North of Nowhere
is a visual and lyrical representation of what it is to attempt to shift the perception of a city not notoriously known for hip hop.
Tracks such as Calahoun Ave., Reminder, and Vantage Point off Mat’s EP, Alignment, can also be heard in the film.
