New Year, New Life and my first post. And exciting it is as it`s a little collaboration with old friend of mine, Olimpia aka Olimpia Dior – photographer and performer, Polish artist currently based in NYC.
Olimpia is back to her roots which is a film-making, and in a very now-way as she has just done an iPhone movie about her friend India Salvor Menuez – an actress/model and artist who grew up and also is based in New York City. The impression Olimpia had of India – she was the most futuristic young movie star she had ever encountered. India is known for working with her friends, and does not really obey any traditional rules of show business as she is 100% independent and it seems she just follows her intuition.

Some of the materials were filmed during Performa 2013 festival. India introduced Olimpia to the artist Marianne Vitale and they all performed together in Marianne’s “Missing Book of Spurs”. Another scenes show India reading at The Newsstand (new stand/zine and book boutique at busy Brooklyn metro station-Metropolitan ave/Lorimer Street)- at the release of new Zine by Luckyou Collective, which India is a part of, and some other scenes were filmed at 8 ball zine fair on 12th floor at Space Billiard on 32nd street in Manhattan.
One of the days Olimpia met her to film the scene of Heather brushing her hair in her apartment, just before their photo-shoot with Ryan McGinley for Purple magazine.

Originally I asked Olimpia to do interview India and it evolved into this short document about a very “free” and young actress.  Getting back to the basis of creation – low budget, quite real and quite poetic portrait of the situation and India.

India as an actress is known for SOMETHING IN THE AIR /2012/ by Olivier Assayas, RUNAROUND /2009/ by KT Auleta and PEBBLE OF LOVE IN THE SHOE OF MY LIFE /in progress/ by Hossein Keshavarz. She is also cofounder /in the age of 15/ and part of, as mentioned above, LuckyYou Collective and more of her as an artist you can find at her homepage
