Mira Furlan interviewed [Monday, September 12th 2011]

There's an interview from Wizard World’s Anaheim Comic Con 2011

And forgive me if I act as Captain Obvious, but http://www.mirafurlan.net is updated, with a blog, translations from her new book and loads of great pictures!

Hatching Day [Wednesday, September 7th 2011]

It's September 7th again -- and it's Mira's birthday! Happy Birthday Mira!


News! News! [Monday, June 20th 2011]

1. Mira Furlan is coming to Anaheim Comic-Con in California (Anaheim Comic Con 2012, Wizard World Convention, APRIL 27-28-29, 2012, FRI-SAT-SUN)

2. I found this and almost fainted: Best Supporting Actress Award, Kiev, Ukraine. Wow. It is the place where I live and first I thought I had missed Mira here. Scary, ha? But she wasn't coming. "Turneja" ("The Tour") received the first prize at Kiev International Film Festival, though our papers don't give any details about supporting roles etc.

3. A new project Do Not Forget Me Istanbul (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1883168) is ready and coming to the theatres September 1st.
"Do not forget me Istanbul" is a joint effort by six directors, mainly from the Balkans and the Middle East, who want to remind people that Istanbul is a city whose memories go beyond Turkey's borders and whose history belongs to the people of those countries as well.
Mira's part: "Dragan and Ana take a long, tiring bus trip every weekend to sell cheap gadgets they carry in old suitcases in the urban jungle called Aksaray. One weekend they lose each other in the crowded streets, and while desperately looking for her husband, Ana encounters someone she lost many years ago: her son Marko who died in the war that tore the Balkans apart in the 1990s. Could that really be him?"
About the film: here and here.

Long-lasting project from 2007, "Apology" is also promised to be ready and comes with a title "Surviving Me" this year.

And pictures: Great one from the last Anaheim Comic-ConCollapse )

From Istanbul film - love it!Collapse )

The way Mira was singing in 1986

Do you think I should translate November interview or is it too old?


[Tuesday, December 21st 2010]

I found this nice picture from "Turneja"

And an old (summer) interview with really good photos like this

here: http://dnevnik.hr/showbizz/sarajevo-film-festival/mira-furlan-misliti-je-subverzivna-djelatnost.html

Just watched a new film, "Cirkus Columbia", loved it, very touching... I think it will soon be translated.

new interview [Wednesday, November 3rd 2010]

Interview in Croatian, about Mira's new book "Totalna rasprodaja", which is really (as scapersuse said) a collection of short prose and essays written for Croatian magazine Feral Tribune in the course of 2 years. The book was the way to make these texts available for larger public. The title is about the loss of general value system, etc. Mira was a foreign correspondent for the magazine and wrote about her american life (a column was titled "Letters from America", or American postcards, as they used to call it), as well as about her travels and different topics she had to think about. It was fun and a kind of mental exercise.

(gorgeous look!)


a book [Thursday, October 28th 2010]

Did you know that Mira wrote a book? "Totalna rasprodaja" i.e. Total sell


Description (VERY quick translation of mine): Although this opinion does not correspond the rules of literary analysis, the most accurate it would be to say that it is a collection of essays and short prose records of Mira Furlan structured as a pearl necklace. And among these texts there are those who themselves are of low value, such as the one with the title 'The Emigrants'.

Written as extremely intelligent and insightful, this book is a kind of act of resistance, but one in which the author - not befitting the status of the object, not even the 'object of thought' - more commonly uses questionnaires rather than an exclamation point. This is a very fine weave. It is about an artist and intellectual who does not reconcile with the given, but persistently questions the reality around her, to the most awkward detail, and attempts to assess the dimensions of her own non-belonging.

In this book, not-belonging is probably the key word, in which the position and fate ere summarized, a kind of creative vocation, which was described by Joni Mitchell as 'unwillingness of co-operation'. It results in nonconformity in all its delicacy; rare literary gift which the author manages to produce is the subtle side of the rebellion. In addition, in the background it echoes all the time with the mantra of yoga teachers: Do not look for anything outside of yourself… A world of Mira Furlan - which has defiance and understanding, bitterness and tenderness, irony and doubt – is luxurious.
