Will Hutchinson’s film “Over The Hill” will hold it’s world premiere at the 2013 East End Film Festival. The screening will take place at the Genesis Cinema in London on June 27th. “Over The Hill” was shot on a zero budget (actually a £600 budget) and used regional volunteer actors from the village around the set location.
The film takes place in a small community called Pendeen and follows Rebecca, a Londoner who is trying to finish her novel. Seeking seclusion after months of writer’s block, she seeks remoteness and isolation, and books a few weeks at Overhill house.. After one day she finds that the locals know her name, where she’s staying and what she’s doing there, and while she just wants to finish her book in peace they seem to have other ideas. A taut, impressive debut that mixes social realism with a hint of Straw Dogs, this is a film that turns on the ironic statement: Welcome To Cornwall.
