Faces in the Mirror
Directed by Boyd Tinsley
2012, 75 min, US
Directed by Boyd Tinsley of the Dave Matthews Band, "Faces in the Mirror" is a film scored to music. It dances. It's a film that dances with the music and takes you on an emotional roller-coaster ride that never let's you go.
This story is about Ben Fisher, a young man who returns home to bury his father. Angry that he had been neglected by his workaholic father, Ben had refused to see him for years. On the day of his father's funeral, Ben goes on a dream-like odyssey where he's led, portal by portal, to fantastical places with somewhat mystifying people who all seem to be guiding him somewhere. He's looking for a way to be free of his pain and guilt. He's looking for forgiveness.
This is a film that's not only meant to be seen, it's meant to be experienced. An experience of music, visuals and emotion. It's like a dream.
The screening is followed by a QA with the director and then ticket holders are welcome to join the SF IndieFest Opening Night Party at the Brava Theater with DJ Haute Mess (Brass Taxx), an open bar, nibbles and a performance by Boyd Tinsley, violin player in the Dave Matthews Band, playing live with local band GHOST TOWN GOSPEL.
