Video Selections: Miranda July, Everywhere




The past two years have treated author/spoken-word/performance artist Miranda July kindly. After a well-fawned over feature film debut as idiosyncratic screenwriter-star-director, and a Zen-site that in some ways has overshadowed the book it was constructed to promote (and another in the works for a hugs and kisses project), what’s happening this very instant? A herky-jerky starring spot in Blonde Redhead’s new video, put together by (boyfriend still? No matter.) Thumbsucker director Mike Mills (previously). Somewhere in the future timeline, a backlash seems imminent.

Video 1: Top Ranking – Blonde Redhead (via Your Daily Awesome).

Video 2: a reading for her new book, No One Belongs Here More Than You, hosted by The Stranger (Seattle – 5/17/2007).

Video 3: Short Film – Are You The Favorite Person of Anybody? (2005) Starring John C. Reilly. Written by, and featuring Miranda July. Directed by Miguel Arteta.

Video 4: Short Film – Getting Stronger Every Day (2001). Starring Richard Greiling, Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney), and Mia Cianciulli. Written and directed by Miranda July.

Previously: Things We Don’t Understand and Definitely Are Not Going to Talk About – her next film?

    certainly like your website but you need to test
    the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them
    are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to
    tell the truth then again I will definitely come back again.
