It was a Coppola family affair at the Los Angeles premiere of Four Stories, a short film series sponsored by and featuring W Hotels and Intel Ultrabooks. Roman Coppola curated. Jason Schwartzman and Robert Schwartzman starred in two of the films. And Talia Shire turned out to support her sons and nephew.
Die Again, Undead One is Roman Coppola’s bonus contribution to the slate. It’s part Coppola just having fun with the idea of Hollywood, B-movies, and his cousin (Schwartzman), and part plug for A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swann III (in theaters February 8).
But the main event was to show the four films that were selected from over 1,000 screenplays by a panel of indie film cool kids like Chloë Sevigny and Michael Pitt, and quickly turned into sleek shorts set in W Hotels around the world on budgets of around $75K each.
After the jump, take a look at the Four Stories, directed by Lake Bell (In a World…), Lee Toland Krieger (Celeste and Jesse Forever), Spencer Susser (Hesher), and Kahlil Joseph (Until the Quiet Comes).
