When 7:30PM - 9:30PM
Where George Gund Building , Aitken Auditorium
The Cinematheque will welcome filmmaker, artist, actress, and writer Miranda July, who will answer audience questions after a screening of her latest feature film, The Future. July’s videos, performances, and web-based projects have been seen at such venues as the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum, and in two Whitney Biennials. Her award-winning fiction has appeared in The Paris Review, Harper’s, and The New Yorker, and her first feature film, Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005), won the Camera d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. The Future stars July and Hamish Linklater as a passive, thirtysomething L.A. couple, stuck in a funk of dispassion and disappointment, who decide to adopt an injured cat. During the anxious month before the animal’s arrival (when their lives will change forever), they each decide to quit their jobs and do some things they always wanted to do, but never got around to.
35mm. 91 min. Miranda July’s appearance is sponsored by NEOMFA (Northeast Ohio Master of Fine Arts Creative Writing). Admission $9; Cinematheque members and those with CIA, Univ. of Akron, CSU, KSU, or Youngstown State Univ. I.D.’s $7; age 25 & under $6. No passes, twofers, or radio winners. Special thanks to Mike Geither and Dan Riordan.
