When a couple decides to adopt a stray cat their perspective on life changes radically, literally altering the course of time and space and testing their faith in each other and themselves.
Miranda July is a filmmaker, artist, and writer. Her videos, performances, and web-based projects have been presented at the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum and in two Whitney Biennials.
July wrote, directed and starred in her first feature-length film, Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005), which won a special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival and four prizes at the Cannes Film Festival, including the Camera d’Or.
Her fiction has appeared in The Paris Review, Harper’s, and The New Yorker; her collection of stories, No One Belongs Here More Than You (2007), won the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award and has been published in 20 countries.
She created the participatory website, “learningtoloveyoumore” with artist Harrell Fletcher and a companion book was published in 2007. Eleven Heavy Things, an interactive sculpture garden she designed for the 2009 Venice Biennale, was on view in Union Square in New York in the summer of 2010.
Raised in Berkeley, California, she currently lives in Los Angeles.
