Geoffrey Holder, the Tony Award-winning director, calls them “decent people’s children.” They are the gifted, thoughtful visionaries who see that something needs to be done for the betterment of society and, on a whim and a prayer, proceed to make it happen.

Enter Patrice Johnson Chevannes, an award-winning Brooklyn-based filmmaker and actress, and her company, God-and-all-o-wee LLC and Ubigwitus Entertainment, producers of the film, “Hill and Gully” (2008, U.S.A., 117 min.), which recently enjoyed a special debut screening on Dec. 9 at the Irish Repertory Theatre in New York.

“Patrice Johnson (right) has an extensive acting resume, which includes writing, directing and producing.  The Jamaican born and New York raised Johnson wrote, directed, and starred in Hill and Gully. It’s “an urban Cinderella story” set during the 2008 election year of Barack Obama around a mother (Johnson) who works at a Caribbean restaurant named after the film title, who has a mother who won’t leave the house and a 10-year-old daughter who is constantly acting out at school.”
