It's the bottle's 100th anniversary
A documentary about the classic Coca-Cola bottle? It’s about time.
Timed to its 100th anniversary, Matthew Miele will produce a documentary this year on the bottle’s history, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The film will focus on the bottle since its invention in 1915 and its influence on pop art, cinema and artists like Andy Warhol.
“When I can hold up a Coca-Cola bottle and ask, ‘is this art or is this commerce?’ and most commonly hear ‘it’s both,’ that sets the stage for an intriguing narrative,” said Miele, who intends to interview personalities and luminaries across various industries.
Coca-Cola has approved the project and will help pay for marketing.
