Heart of Coppola

August 15, 2012 is the 33rd Anniversary of the U.S. premiere of Apocalypse Now, Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of Joseph Conrad's novella, Heart of Darkness.

This theme is paralleled in Apocalypse Now and by Coppola's own journey in completing his most personal film. The documentary, Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse is a compilation of Eleanor Coppola's interviews, on-the-set footage and secret audio recordings of her husband at his most exposed moments.
