About

Single Hills, Wilkie Cornelius Jr.’s feature film (adapted from his play of the same name) is a colorful story that explores the unpredictable nature of relationships.

The play was first introduced to sold out audiences in June 2004 at the Creative Place Theatre in New York City.

Starring Obie award winner J Kyle Manzay (American Gangster), newcomer Krystal Hill, Maryam Basir (Mooz-lum), and television sitcom vet Victor L. Williams (King Of Queens, CBS), the story is told from the point of view of Jay, a struggling filmmaker who toils as an infomercial director during the day.  Jay, is fearful of serious commitment and sends his longtime companion, Lisa, mixed messages about the status of their future. When she distances herself from their relationship, he realizes his loss and fanatically pursues her until his life spirals out of control.

Paced by a soulful score from R&B Producer Junod Etienne, Single Hills is set in the vibrant neighborhoods of Fort Greene, Dumbo, Bedford Stuyvesant, and Clinton Hill. As we follow Jay and Lisa on their emotional journey, we are taken to local African Art museums, bike rides at Prospect Park and summer afternoons at the Brooklyn Bridge Waterfront.  The comedic drama, which explores male vulnerability, portrays the fear and anxiety we face in our relationships as we try to balance them with our careers, dreams, and aspirations.
