Sofia Coppola: This Woman’s Work – A Panel Discussion


July 18, 2017
7:00 pm


Books & Books in Coral Gables
265 Aragon Ave
Coral Gables, FL 33134 United States


In May 2017, Sofia Coppola became the second woman to win the Best Director prize in the 70-year history of the Cannes Film Festival. Over the past two decades, Coppola has proven to be a strong feminine voice in a male-dominated industry. Gables Cinema Associate Director Javier Chavez will moderate a panel discussion that will explore Coppola’s career and the themes in her work, with a focus on her newest film, The Beguiled. This panel is presented by the Gables Cinema and Books & Books.

The panel will feature the following guests:

Juan Barquin is a film critic and arts writer for Dim the House Lights and Miami New Times, whose work has also appeared in the Miami Herald and Flavorwire. He is also a programmer for Flaming Classics.

Lauren Cohen is a film critic and arts writer for SocialMiami, whose work has also appeared on Examiner.com and Miami Beach News. She is also a programmer for Miami Film Festival.

Christina Lane is the Chair and Associate Professor of the Department of Cinema and Interactive Media at the University of Miami. She is the author of the book, Feminist Hollywood: From Born in Flames to Point Break.

*Please note: Sofia Coppola will NOT be present at this event. This is a panel discussion talk based on her work.
