An Evening with Miranda July, 92YTribeca 7/14/11
Miranda July's 2005 feature Me and You and Everyone We Know announced a major cinematic talent capable of exploring the awkward nuances of human communication with an unlikely bittersweet edge.
Her latest movie, The Future, continues that with an even deeper personal touch: July co-stars as Sophie, an uncertain woman in her early 30s worried about the direction her life has taken since she started dating Jason (Hamish Linklater). The story unfolds with July's whimsical touches, which include regular voiceover from an abandoned cat the couple tries to rescue from the pound. There's also a scene where Jason stops time and has a conversation with the moon. July, who takes time between her projects and works in a variety of other media, will sit down with indieWIRE for this special event to discuss her unique outlook and share clips from the new film.
Part of the series indieWIRE at 15.
