Since march 2020 Mirela has been collaborating with Paradoxx Films, an independent award-winning film company and creative hub from NYC. She participated in pre-production and production of the film in a role as artistic director and she created the poster for the film. The production of short fiction film Memories is funded through Kickstarter campaign which was supported with 89 donators. The premiere of the film was on May 8th in 2022 in Brooklyn, NY.
Theme of the short film is about the universal experience of migration, love and loss. It is about young guy Bruno who is expecting his first baby with Jasmine. He is dealing with memories about his past and migrant experience from Africa.
Dragana Bogavac, executive producer and Edwin Illoh, writer and director of the short fiction film Memories gave Mirela complete freedom to create the poster. She decided to create the physical artwork and then incorporate the image in the poster. She hopes this poster will give the film additional dimension while giving the public image they could interpret in many different ways.
Mirela's statement for the poster:
"This poster I created is linked to the short fiction film Memories, however it is also the result of my exploration of broader topic, memory, and it condenses ten years of exploration of visual language and universal symbols. The color palette is reduced to black and grey. I wanted to achieve simplicity and sophistication at the same time by using a round black shape as something that generates movement of other particles (shapes) in the image, however it is not clear if these articles are entering this bigger shape or they are coming from it and moving towards the edge of the image. For me, there is the whole universe in this image."
The poster is available as fine art limited edition print. Each one is numbered. Please pre-order on: studio[at]mirelakulovic[dot]com
