I watched this film without knowing it was an ad; only after I’d searched “Oliver Peoples” did I realize it was an eyewear company. That explains all the, you know, sunglasses they keep wearing.
The blurb: Starring real life couple Devendra Banhart and Rebecca Schwartz, the premise of the Oliver Peoples 2011 campaign is an exploration of authentic intimacy and sexuality. The love affair is explored in the one-of-a-kind masterpiece by architect John Lautner: Rainbow House. The contemporary California setting proved to be a perfect atmosphere to showcase the natural chemistry of the young, intriguing couple. Produced with acclaimed photographer and aspiring director Lisa Eisner, the short film will debut in early 2011 on the Oliver Peoples website.
Director: Lisa Eisner
