'Things We Don't Understand' - Miranda July's next film?

miranda_july.jpg“The first thing I did after the movie [Me and You and Everyone We Know] was … to basically tell my brand new fancy movie agents, ‘Oh, by the way, just don’t even talk to me for a year because you’re not going to care what I’m doing.'”

Set to make its east-coast debut on March 1st, in-house favorite Miranda July talks with Erica Orden of the New York Sun about her multimedia stage performance Things We Don’t Understand and Definitely Are Not Going to Talk About, which incorporates live and taped video segments, with musical help from Jon Brion (favorite of P.T. Anderson, Michel Gondy, and most recently Kanye West) and audience participation from real-life couples and singles. Orden states that Miranda is in the process of adapting Things We Don’t Understand (described as a “disintegration of a romantic relationship” narrative) into a film script, continuing:

“But Ms. July would rather no one know about that. When asked when to expect the film, she answered with the modesty of someone much less celebrated. ‘It’s so dangerous to say because no one could want to finance it,’ she said. ‘So it’s best for everyone to just forget about it. Of course, except me.'”
