Movie Info

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

Mixes real-life situations and characters with fictionalized narrative threads to create a highly authentic slice-of-life drama.

At times the improvised dialogue seems too schematic and superfluous, especially in view of such exploratory and observant handheld camera work. Otherwise, though, this is wonderful stuff.

Writer-director Keith Miller's existential tone and Harper's gentle approach and giant soul turn this New York story with a final twist into something special.

[It] relies on understatement and indirection to arrive at a powerful and resonant meaning.

Welcome to Pine Hill precariously navigates the line between representing the perspective of a black male and projecting a white man's guilt onto it.

The urban angst over the city's diversity seems authentic.

Harper's strong, understated performance brings dignity and humour to the role.

Eye for Film

This is a film that is both short on plot and stretched out in time. If it weren't for the hand-held camera lingering on some shots way too long with no cuts, this film would be only about 40 minutes long.

An intimate and existential character study of a man out of place with his past, himself, and his surroundings...it never quite coalesces as deeply as it hopes to, but this spiritual tale of redemption resonates.

Keith Miller doesn't always trust the fluency of his visual language, occasionally forcing a point that's already being captured.
