WELCOME TO PINE HILL is an extension of Miller’s earlier short film PRINCE/WILLIAM about an unexpected encounter surrounding a lost dog. Blurring the line between documentary and fiction, PINE HILL follows that short’s protagonist Shannon, a reformed drug dealer who is now an insurance claims adjuster, in the days following a grim medical diagnosis. Shannon, portrayed in an extraordinarily intimate performance by first time actor Shannon Harper, sets out to make peace with those around him and in turn find his own peace beyond the cacophony of New York City.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [It] relies on understatement and indirection to arrive at a powerful and resonant meaning.
Fresh: Mixes real-life situations and characters with fictionalized narrative threads to create a highly authentic slice-of-life drama.
Fresh: A tender cinema verite take on one man's quest for spiritual redemption.
Rotten: Keith Miller doesn't always trust the fluency of his visual language, occasionally forcing a point that's already being captured.
I saw this film in Munich and it blew me away. I wasn't sure what to expect and knew nothing about the film when I walked in but I'm grateful that I did. Keith Miller is an innovator, pushing feature film to new places. I can't wait to see what the guy does next!
