“Sofia Coppola: Forever Young” is a celebration of Sofia Coppola’s singular career as a filmmaker and artist. This comprehensive monograph charts her growth from a teenage actress to an Academy Award-winning filmmaker, with full-color photography, extensive interviews with her closest collaborators, and exclusive collages. Produced by Little White Lies for Abrams New York, the book was written by Hannah Strong, the Digital Editor of Little White Lies magazine, and a life-long Sofia devotee. Hannah wanted to present Coppola’s filmography in an accessible but critically-engaging fashion, which inspired her to create a book that combines biography, critical analysis and personal essay, as intimate and expansive as Coppola’s films.
To celebrate the release of “Sofia Coppola: Forever Young,” Hannah is hosting this screening alongside her friends at Flaming Classics, which presents Coppola’s much-maligned millennial true-crime dramedy The Bling Ring alongside a drag performance.
Copies of “Sofia Coppola: Forever Young” will be available for purchase on the night, and Hannah will be signing all copies.
Flaming Classics electrifies the movie-going experience through a curated film series, pairing films from the queer canon with live performances from local drag artists to create a one-of-a-kind event.
