Boyd Tinsley’s “Faces in the Mirror” movie bought by distributor
Boyd Tinsley’s “Faces in the Mirror,” an unreleased 2011 feature film, may finally see the light of day.
Variety reports that distributor SnagFilms has purchased the rights to “Faces in the Mirror” and will release the movie on various platforms — possibly including its own site, Hulu and more — this summer or fall.
Not much is known about “Faces in the Mirror,” which Variety describes as a drama. A select group of fans got to attend a screening at last year’s Dave Matthews Band Caravan at The Gorge, and that was the only known showing of the movie. Boyd’s role is also unclear, although he likely produced and/or wrote the film.
Aaron Farrington is the director, according to the Facebook page for Toronto-based D.J. V’1LL1N, who recorded music for the movie with Boyd in New Orleans. And an actress named Jessica Mei Gershen plays the lead female character, Susan, according to her IMDb resume.
UPDATE (March 12, 5:17 P.M.): Here’s some more information about “Faces in the Mirror,” from SnagFilms’ press release:
Faces in the Mirror is a new drama conceived and produced by Boyd Tinsley of Dave Matthews Band. In unusual reversal of the standard artistic process, the concept for the film began with its music, produced by Tinsley and performed by members of Dave Matthews Band, including Stefan Lessard, Tim Reynolds, Boyd Tinsley and Dave Matthews, along with musician Shawn Smith and music groups Maktub and The Silent Comedy. Tinsley has said, “Faces In The Mirror is a dance of film and music. It is a fantasy, a journey that leads us from one portal to the next. It is a story, that not so much we tell, but one that is told through us.” The film was directed by Aaron Farrington, produced by Ryan Gall in addition to Tinsley, and features special material written and voiced by former Poet Laureate of the United States, Rita Dove.
