Watch: Agyness Deyn Short 'Here'

Tilda Swinton is a collaborator and Jason Schwartzman does soundtrack.

"Take the train until you are here." And so begins fifteen minutes of wishing you were Agyness Deyn (who are we kidding, that desire is a daily occurrence). The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts have released a short film, Here, that stars Agyness Deyn as a beautiful nameless traveller who is sent off across the countryside on a scavenger hunt of sorts. From her breakfast plate to the talons of a falcon, she receives a number of anonymous handwritten notes, drawings and the occasional plane ticket that take her to Vermont, then to Arizona and finally to Hawaii where she meets up with the mysterious note-sender.

Sure, it's one giant advertisement for the hotel chain, but daym, it's one hell of an advertisement! The film was conceived by Waris Ahluwalia, with the help of Tilda Swinton and her partner, artist Sandro Kopp, and was directed by Luca Guadagnino. Guadagnino directed Swinton and Ahluwalia in the 2009 film I Am Love. Agyness was styled by Heidi Bivens and the complete lack of dialogue is, surprisingly, barely noticed and instead filled with haunting, original music by Jason Schwartzman and Woody Jackson.
