In her quirky fashion, filmmaker/artist Miranda July (Me and You and Everyone We Know, 2005) based her latest short film, “Somebody,” on an app that enables people to deliver personal messages in a very impersonal way. The film, which premiered at this year’s Venice Film Festival, is currently available on YouTube, but you can watch the 10-minute short below.
The film lacks a narrative, but it makes for an enjoyable watch. July was commissioned to make this film for fashion label miu miu’s Women’s Tales series, and yes, the app is real. Get more information here.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iz13HMsvb6o]
