Drama.  Mystery.  Thriller.  Canadian filmmaker Albert Shin returns after making waves with his 2014 film IN HER PLACE with this startling thriller named after the popular tourist promenade in Niagara Falls, Ontario. CLIFTON HILL centres on Abby (Tuppence Middleton) who, after the death of her mother, returns home to run her family-owned hotel as a traumatic incident she vividly witnessed as child re-surfaces to haunt her personal life. She becomes obsessed with investigating what she saw as a child, which begins to complicate her already precarious disposition. Her research propels her towards the lurid underbelly of the honeymoon capital of the world, which includes the troubled backstory of a couple of Siegfried & Roy-esque tiger performers, a local history podcast operated out of the basement of a UFO themed pizza shop, and a rare acting role by legendary filmmaker David Cronenberg. Quirkiness and darkness are intertwined in this unique story that exemplifies contemporary Canadian independent filmmaking. This film co-stars Hannah Gross, Marie-Josée Croze, and Edmonton’s own Eric Johnson
