The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts reunited Waris with Luca Guadagnino, the director of their Golden Globe-nominated film, I Am Love, to create a cinematic experience that offers a glimpse into the hidden treasures of some of America's favorite destinations. The short film stars Agyness Deyn with music by Jason Schwartzman and Woody Jackson, and was shot at three of The Luxury Collection's most iconic properties across the United States, aiming to inspire global travelers to explore and discover destinations in a unique and authentic way.
As The Luxury Collection's Global Explorer, Waris conceived and wrote the project with Luca Guadagnino, Sandro Kopp and Tilda Swinton. The film chronicles the journey of a woman as she follows a cross-country scavenger hunt set out by her lover. Integral to her stops are three of The Luxury Collection’s most historic properties: The Equinox Resort & Spa in Vermont, The Phoenician Resort & Spa in Arizona and The Royal Hawaiian Resort in Hawaii.
