Hearts Of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse
Filming was scheduled to last sixteen weeks. One year later it was far from over.
In 1979, Francis Ford Coppola shook the film world with Apocalypse Now, a harrowing odyssey through the ravaged landscape of the Vietnam War.
Nearly thirty years later, the journey resumes with Hearts Of Darkness, a riveting chronicle of the turbulent making of Apocalypse Now. Through on-the-set footage filmed by Coppola's wife, Eleanor, and more recent interviews with the film's cast and crew, Hearts Of Darkness is the fantastic history of a movie beset by physical and personal upheavals: the complete destruction of the film sets by hurricane; the heart attack of leading man Martin Sheen; the director's own admission that he has no idea of how the movie will end.
Hearts Of Darkness is an unforgettable, unflinchingly honest account of a landmark film that was a miracle in the making.
