Oscilloscope Laboratories will release Keith Miller's Welcome To Pine Hill starting on March 1 at IFC in NYC.

A film that received enough votes to appear on the S&A Best of 2012 list, Welcome To Pine Hill straddles the worlds of fact and fiction, documentary and narrative, as it follows a recently reformed drug dealer, now working as a claims adjuster by day and bouncer by night, who receives some earth-shattering news, forcing him to make peace with himself.

"An affectionate work of cinema verite, the film blurs the boundaries between documentary and fiction, presenting an unexpectedly quiet and atmospheric depiction of a journey to self-discovery and spiritual redemption, taken by an unlikely cinematic lead character - a lonely, single, relatively quiet black male in his 20s, cutting an imposing figure, a head of corn rows, but who carries himself with a tenderness you wouldn't expect. The "un-urban," "urban" film, with a lead character Hollywood wouldn't know what to do with."

It world premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival last year, where it won the Grand Jury Award.

Made in collaboration with the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective, a group which writer/director Miller belongs, the film, a 2011 Independent Filmmaker Lab participant, is said to have be inspired by a chance encounter between director Miller and the film's star Shannon Harper, who found themselves fighting over a lost dog one night in Brooklyn, NY.

Ahead of its March 1 theatrical debut, Oscilloscope has released a first trailer for the meditative drame:
