Groovy Giveaway #2: Turtle Hill, Brooklyn on DVD



This week I'm featuring two Groovy Giveaways (click here to win a DVD of the film, Laurence Anyways). Courtesy of Will Pork Productions and Believe Limited, I'm giving away two DVDs of Ryan Gielen's Turtle Hill, Brooklyn, which was an audience favorite at festivals around the country, including NewFest (Audience Award: Best Narrative Feature), ImageOut, the Seattle LGBT Film Festival, Palm Springs' Cinema Diverse and Philadelphia QFest, where it was hailed as "a modern day Boys in the Band" and "intimate and affecting". Variety also called the film "engaging, well-scripted, dynamically shot".

Will and Mateo are throwing a 30th birthday party for Will at their home in Turtle Hill, Brooklyn. When Will's conservative sister stops by unexpectedly, he is forced to come out to her and face the repercussions. The party kicks into action as the friends drink, jump in the kiddie pool, break the piƱata, and argue about politics, relationships, sex and religion. Another surprise guest arrives exposing truths that threaten Will and Mateo's relationship. When the bottles are empty and guests are gone, the couple faces the reality of who they are individuals and where they stand as a couple. Turtle Hill, Brooklyn is a funny, true-to-life look at a couple navigating the ins and outs of a relationship.

Writers/producers Brian W. Seibert and Ricardo Valdez headline the cast as Will and Mateo. The film also stars Ariel Bonilla, Michael Edmund, Rachel Valdati, Maryll Botula and Deirdre MacNamara.

The DVD, which is available nationwide today, includes a feature commentary with the director, writers and selected cast.
