Julie Meckler is proud to announce the release of her first music video, “Manhattan.” The song is the first single off her upcoming album, due out this year. Created by Polish filmmaker Victoria Szymanska and French dancer Mariam Faquir, the video is an international collaboration. It uses 8mm film projections over live action to create a surreal and dreamlike landscape that blurs the line between the past and the present to heartbreaking effect.
Szymanska, a long-time friend of Meckler, currently lives in London and Berlin, though the two first met in Paris in 2003 while Meckler was working as an actress and director. The two artists collaborated on various video projects. Szymanska’s work has been shown at a variety of venues, including the Warsaw Film Festival and the Museum of Modern Art, Manhattan. She is currently in talks with Facets, Chicago, regarding an upcoming exhibition of her work. Faquir lives and works in Paris and is co-founder, along with Meckler, of Bobine Theatre, a progressive theater and dance company. Faquir has received widespread recognition for her ground-breaking work in Paris and Brussels.
“Manhattan” was penned during Meckler’s time spent in the eponymous city. Her beautifully fragile voice perfectly encapsulates moments of devastation, isolation and finally a comforting resolve with her new surroundings.
