BREAKING... Boyd Tinsley Playing with "Faces in the Mirror" at Festival

Boyd Tinsley, violinist of the Dave Matthews Band, will be on hand Saturday night at the Appalachian Film Festival to play accompaniment with his film, "Faces in the Mirror," which runs at 8:30 p.m. prior to the Awards Presentation.

His indie feature  has drawn divergent buzz from the Atlanta Film Festival and a "riveting" from Rolling Stone.  Produced in reverse of the norm --- Tinsley wrote the music, then shot the visuals --- it has been hailed as a modern silent movie and criticized as a "don't know what it is about" entry. There is no dialogue with the exception of narration from poet laureate Rita Dave; otherwise the universal language of music becomes the soundtrack.

After falling into depression following the death of DMB saxophonist LeRoi Moore, Tinsley channeled grief and coping into the film which follows Ben (Ryan Orr) who must rebound from his dad's demise, whose journey will be depicted totally through music and expression.

In an earlier interview, Tinsley explained, "This was the kind of movie I wanted to make, one that took the audience on an emotional rollercoaster ride from beginning to end. Music is a big part of lending emotion to movies, so I knew that as long as you know how a movie is supposed to feel, you can actually create the music first."
