Rehabilitation of the Hill is a timely film that goes deep into one of our nation's once vibrant, historically Black communities, now often seen as a place of crime, poverty, blight and cheap real estate. An act of police violence ignites the story as our characters again find themselves wrestling with how to elevate their community and knowing who to trust.  Sparked by the passions of two young women in a story reminiscent to You've Got Mail, their friction is perhaps the key to both save and rehabilitate one of the nation's greatest Black communities. 

Rehabilitation of the Hill was declared, "A study in craft, inspiration," by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and won Best Feature at the Jacksonville Film Festival.

Directed by Demetrius Wren 
Produced by the University of Pittsburgh, Steeltown Entertainment and Two Kids with a Camera

Starring Harry Lennix (The Blacklist, The Matrix Reloaded), Christina Wren (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman), Joshua Elijah Reese (How to Get Away with Murder, Shameless), and introducing Kelsey Packwood

Demetrius Wren

Demetrius Wren (writer / director) has a deep love for exploring complex characters in his stories. From his first play about Black families like his own in Mississippi - Legends, Myths and Hieroglyphs (called by Christopher Durang one of the most original scripts he’s read) - to Streetball, a documentary intimately following the players in South Africa’s homeless street soccer leagues, he is drawn to communities that are often overlooked by the media, hidden from our public eye, seen as undesirable. He made a Virtual Reality film with the United Nations, documenting the stories after the 2015 earthquake in Nepal and has directed the feature films Saudade? and Moon and Sun as well as several shorts and episodics. His most recent feature, Rehabilitation of the Hill, is a piece very close to his heart, brought to life in the historic Hill District in the city of Pittsburgh.
