Let's go into the future
Today my personal hero will be in town. And I will meet her.
I am following Miranda Julys work since many, many years and fell in love with her art at first sight. She is the best example for me, that it is possible to work in many different genres and be as successful in one area as in others. She is a performance artist SLASH filmmaker SLASH actress SLASH writer SLASH artist in general. She and her work had become very popular over the last years and I believe it is very difficult to remain grounded with all ballyhoo...
I still like her work and I worship her way of thinking and creating. Miranda July has a very unique style and I hope she is able to keep it that way.
Today she is presenting her new feature film THE FUTURE in Munich. I saw THE FUTURE at the Berlinale Film Festival earlier this year already and I was impressed how she sketches the lostness of our 30-something generation. She draws a perfect line between weird scenery and very genuine situations at the same time.
But see for yourself. For example tonight at the MONOPOL Cinema in Munich at 19:00. Miranda will be there as well.
PS: Her brand new book came out last week IT CHOOSES YOU. I am very curious about that one. You can get a copy here already.
