The Next Conversation
Popular American cinema is dead, and the Hollywood Sign sleeps with the fishes. Our information ages data flood has drowned it in a sea of digital leisure time. Francis Ford Coppola recently put it more succinctly to a Bloomberg interviewer in Beirut. The cinema as we know it is falling apart, he said, adding that he sees the industry going toward directors real-time interaction with the audience. Want to ask a follow-up question? Do it this Saturday at the Miami Beach Cinematheque after the 2 p.m. premiere of the directors new film, Tetro, followed by a live webcast Q&A with Coppola (wholl be in Greece).
Tetro is an Argentine-Italian family drama and Coppolas first original script since 1974s The Conversation, a paranoid mindfuck starring Gene Hackman in one of his best performances. Cost is $12, $11 for students and seniors, and $10 for MBC members.
