Sofia Coppola Sings the Lupang Hinirang

In 1977, when Sofia Coppola was 5 years old, her dad recorded an interview with her. He asked Sofia what she would like to tell her future adult self.

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

Aside from saying that she wanted to be middle-sized (not too fat nor too skinny), Sofia even sang the Lupang Hinirang (Philippine national anthem), and also counted from 1 to 10 in fookien. She probably learned all that while Francis Ford Coppola was in the Philippine filming Apocalypse Now.

I had more fun listening to the recording than watching Lost in Translation. ;-)

The song comes after the 2-minute mark. It will work if you have Real Player or Windows Media Player installed. Dindin, can you hear the recording on your Mac?

(Thanks, Cynthia!)
