HUSTLE is a comedy about a foreign actress confronting demoralizing challenges while trying to ”make it” in the cut-throat film industry. Life is rough for this aspiring Finnish actress as she gets her feet wet in the rat race, trying not to get dragged through the sewers of the Big Apple.
Feature Film The Sky is Blue With Lies
Sini plays the lead in John Reed’s feature film The Sky is Blue With Lies.
”Late 70s, downtown NYC, bar scene. Fara (Sini Hill), the barkeep’s young wife, falls in love with her beautiful stepson, Po (John Busa), just back from California. Early 80s, a filmmaker goes back to the witnesses and players, who tell the story of the tragedy. It’s Phaedra and Hippolytus, shot in a cool-tempered No Wave style.
Sini Hill was born and raised in Finland – the freezing land of lakes, forests, reindeers and of course…Santa Claus. At a young age, she had a strong exposure to the arts, which includes, playing the piano since the age of 3, theater, dance, visual arts and singing. In addition to music and arts, Sini actively competed in Aesthetic Group Gymnastics.
A note from Sini
I fell in love with the power of theater and film realizing I had a passion for acting. While living in Finland, I completed my academic degree in Communications and Public Relations but a dream of acting was always on my mind. It was only after extensive travels and living abroad that I refocused my energy and moved to New York City. During my time here, I graduated from NYFA’s Acting for Film. My journey lead me to the U.S. allowing me to pursue my dreams and I have been working in film, theater and television ever since!
