book of miri.

hi dears!

has anyone seen the film 'book of miri' ? it is about miri, a young swedish girl working in a bookstore and blogging. every day she is posting a photo of herself in her clothes, always in a new pose ... actually she's trying to find her own identity. she is half korean, living in sweden, never knowing who she really is.

actually it is a film about the real blogger miri and her real life, or her double life as a working girl and blogger, sharing her life and clothes with people around the world. her photos are always colourful, intense, and yet, somewhat touching. i can also tell you something about my odyssee in search of identity, as an asian in a western world. she is also half-korean, thus she has a little more sympathy than she already had before. because katrine philip is showing real life (or what one thinks it is), the film might also be considered a documentary film. but i also think it is high art

it is also interesting that katrine philip, the director of this film, is still a student of the Danish Film School. she has my respect for this masterful work.
it was shown at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam in 2009.
i think she had done well.

did you already see it? what do you think of it?
would you be interested in watching?

xoxo, dahi.
