New Mirvish feature Between Us a lesson in indie filmmaking

Once dubbed a "cheerful subversive" by The New York Times, indie filmmaker Dan Mirvish uses his skills as a provocateur and promoter to get his obscure work noticed by the very mainstream whose noses he sometimes tweaks. 

He's in rare company as a Nebraska native feature filmmaker. There's only a handful whose feature work has gotten anything like fairly wide distribution. Joan Micklin Silver is the matriarch....
