‘All I ever really want to know is how other people are making it through life – where do they put their body, hour by hour, and how do they cope inside of it.’ Multi-disciplinary artist Miranda July has charmed the film world with three category-defying feature films: Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005), The Future (2011) and now Kajillionaire, which is one of this festival’s highly anticipated premieres. Like her work as a writer with ‘The First Bad Man’ and ‘No One Belongs Here More Than You’, alongside her performance-based visual arts pieces such as her commissions for the V&A and Artangel, July’s films explore the lonely beauty of being human. They chart characters’ attempts to connect with and understand others, despite the cruelty of the world. It’s a great pleasure to welcome Miranda July back to the Festival, for this in-depth talk about her film work.
