Will Pork Productions and Believe Limited are happy to announce that Ryan Gielen's Turtle Hill, Brooklyn will be available nationwide on DVD October 1st. Turtle Hill, Brooklyn 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 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 piñata, 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.
