Wow, what a weekend New York! And when I say NY, I mean only the relatively few people in New York who saw The Future at the IFC Center, and when I say relatively few I mean hundreds and hundreds of comitted ticketbuyers, standing in rain and deafening heat: thank you. You made news.

And now we expand! This Friday The Future opens in Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago and D.C. Which means it’s time for…. REGIONAL Q+As. I will answering questions (in video) from people who live in those 4 cities — only in those cities. So send in your questions and put your city and zip code as the end of the question, for verification purposes. My answers will appear here on Wednesday or Thursday.

Off to Toronto now, looking forward to seeing some of you at the Images Festival screening tomorrow night. Doing even this small amount of travel and interviews makes me wonder how, for example, does Katie Perry, do it?! My current approach is to just not look within at all, for fear of what I will find in there.

(Pictured above: Crazy times in my hotel room last night between 2 and 3am. This happened right after watching a YouTube video about how to apply make-up to mature eyes. I may have jumped the gun on this video, as I don’t yet have the kind of full-on “hooding” that was described. But when the hooding comes, I will be ready. Pants on the light and ready to go.)

    Dear Ms. July,

    I admire how you’ve been able to make the transition from performing art to film. I also find it inspiring how even in an industry as male dominated as film, you’ve still been able to keep a style and vision that is very much your own.

    Is there any advice you could give to aspiring female filmmakers?

    if your thirteen year old self had to face a fear to save the world’s oxygen supply, what fear would you have chosen and what would it look like when you faced it?

    oh my zipcode is 90024

  3. I really want to see The Future as soon as possible (this Friday!) because I know it’ll be amazing, but I turn 25 on August 22, and I think seeing The Future on my 25th birthday would be, well, perfect. Do you think I should wait for that kind of constructed experience thing or go ahead and see The Future ASAP?
