Hollywood Salon
Special Guest:  Dan Mirvish, director and writer of “Between Us” and co-founder of Slamdance

An Omaha native and original NCCer, Dan Mirvish is an active director, screenwriter, producer and author. His most recent work is “Between Us” , an award-winning feature film starring Julia Stiles and Taye Diggs, that’s played at 21 festivals in 7 countries, and is getting a theatrical release this summer.

Dan was mentored by Robert Altman on his first film, “Omaha (the movie)”, which led him to co-founding the upstart Slamdance Film Festival that runs concurrent with Sundance. His film “Open House” led the Academy Awards to controversially rewrite their rules on the Best Original Musical category. Mirvish also co-wrote the critically-acclaimed novel “I Am Martin Eisenstadt” based on the fake McCain advisor who took credit for Sarah Palin not knowing Africa was a continent.

“Between Us” is a darkly comedic drama in which two couples reunite over two incendiary evenings where anything can happen. Grace and Carlo are a newly married New York couple who visit their old friends Sharyl and Joel in their huge Midwestern home. Despite their wealth, the hosts are in a bitterly destructive marriage. A few years later, the couples reunite in New York, but the tables are turned as the young couple struggles with parenthood and finances, only to discover their old friends even more successful and much happier than before.

It’s gonna be a fun night! Hope to see you TONIGHT Monday, June 10th at the Culver.
