"Black Hill was really impressive. It was so well conceived – so epic and powerful – a genuinely great piece of filmmaking." - Debbie Isitt (Nativity, Nativity 2, Confetti)
"It’s an excellent script and really strong performances; you can feel the initial tension and then the friendship between the two characters. Excellent use of location too." - Philip Ilson - Director of London Short Film Festival
Set in the American West at the time of the Civil War, Red, a confederate solider, collapses as a result of being stranded for days alone in the desert. Taken into safety by Rose, a mute black lady, Red is initially hostile and wary of her, letting his prejudices take over. As time passes, Red learns of his misconceptions and accepts Rose for who she is. However, Red’s past catches up with him, and he is forced to choose between his new life and his past.
