Miranda July is on the short-list of my favorite contemporary artists. Not only is she an accomplished writer, conceptual artist, performance artist, and video artist who explores intense and evocative themes and formal styles, she’s also an accomplished filmmaker in the Hollywood arena. She’s now following up her debut Hollywood film, You Me and Everyone We Know, with a second venture into feature-length film making with new film titled, The Future.

I was thrilled to hear this film, that had previous only been screened at non-local museums and festivals, was making its debut in theaters.
