The Mirror Between Us

Those 4 names attached to any project, on any given day should immediately excite - even if it's what's essentially a 12-minute ad for the companies that sponsored it.

Some back story in short... Four scripts and four rising, visionary filmmakers were chosen for the Intel Corporation and W Hotels "Four Stories" film series; each was filmed on location at W Hotels around the globe - all part of the Ultrabook Experience program; The films debut tonight at a private screening at W London - Leicester Square, followed by a premiere at W Los Angeles - Westwood on December 4 and a premiere at W Hong Kong on December 14; or you can just view them all at youtube.com/fourstories

One of the four shorts, titled The Mirror Between Us, was directed by the uber-talented Kahlil Joseph (we've featured some of his short work on this site previously), stars Nicole Beharie (I'm sure you know who she is), was shot by the man with the incredble eye Malik Hassan Sayeed (he shot several Spike Lee joints, post his Ernest Dickerson collabs, and was a second unit director of photography on Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut and Andrew Niccol’s Gattaca; he also shot Hype Williams’ Belly, for which he was nominated for an IFP award), and finally scored by the inimitable Flying Lotus.

The 12-minute short film co-stars Dan'ee Doty - a  model who has been featured in campaigns for companies like Maybelline and The Gap. The Mirror Between Us marks her debut acting performance in film.

Two young women embark on a dream-like adventure through the islands of the Maldives after an event turned both their worlds upside down.

Without further ado, watch the film below:
