Storyline

A unique story of friendship, race, and self-discovery, WELCOME TO PINE HILL was born out of a chance encounter between filmmaker Keith Miller and star Shannon Harper, who found themselves fighting over a lost dog one night in Brooklyn, NY. Straddling the worlds of fact and fiction, documentary and narrative, WELCOME TO PINE HILL follows Shannon, a recently reformed drug dealer, now working as a claims adjuster by day and bouncer by night. When Shannon receives earth-shattering news, he is compelled to make peace with his past and search for freedom beyond the concrete jungle of New York City. Featuring an extraordinarily intimate performance by Harper playing himself, he is supported by an eclectic cast of both emerging talent and real people. Traveling from backyards of Brooklyn crack houses to the lush Catskill Mountains. the film is a meditative journey about how we choose to live our lives. Written by Annonymous

Stylistically speaking...
17 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a special quality to this film... A slow and sensitive surrender to time, to life, uncommon in contemporary mainstream cinema.

Stylistically "Welcome to Pine Hill" introduces new frontiers and is a cinematic, visual treat.

The filmmaker engages non actors and people/friends whose lives have intersected with his own in one way or another. The lead character (and first time actor) is captivating in his subtlety.

Keith is a director who is not afraid to explore and push the boundaries of film.

If you're in NYC, catch it at IFC in March.
