arrives at a powerful and resonant meaning."

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
Arena Cinema and film distributor Oscilloscope Laboratories are presenting the award-winning film "Welcome to Pine Hill" to Los Angeles moviegoers for a one-week exclusive engagement.
Keith Miller's acclaimed film blurs the line between documentary and fiction and follows 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 finds his own peace beyond the cacophony of New York City.
Miller's screenplay is a mix of true events, embellished events, and fictitious events. A significant part of it is suggested by actual events in Harper's life, with his character based on himself.
The film will be screening at Arena Cinema from June 7th through the 13th for a one week engagement. Showtimes and information can be found at the Arena Cinema website.
"Our Los Angeles audiences understand and appreciate Arena Cinema showcasing new indie films in Hollywood," said Christian Meoli of Voltaire Media, which operates the cinema. "LA is the cinephile capital of the world. We're excited to be working with Oscilloscope Laboratories on this phenomenal great, new film."
