Boyd Tinsley, fiddle player with Dave Matthews Band, can now officially add another line to his resume: filmmaker.
The musician’s first film, “Faces In The Mirror,” is billed as a being “scored to music.” According to an interview Tinsley gave with Rolling Stone last summer, the movie never had an official script. Tinsley has writing and producing credits to the movie.
It will be screened tonight, Feb. 24, at Lilly’s Pad at Toad’s Place in New Haven. Doors are at 8:30, showtime at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10, and available in advance at toadsplace.com. Tinsley will be on hand to talk about the film’s production and answer questions (one could assume he might sign things if you ask nicely).
A description of the film says it’s about a man who comes home to bury his father after a prolonged absence, and goes on a sort of vision quest to come to terms with his tumultuous father/son relationship. Click here for more info from the film’s Facebook page.
The movie’s trailer seems real psychedelic and introspective, with plenty of dramatic slow-motion clips of rain and fire. Check it out below:
