Heart of Darkness: A Filmmakers Apocalypse

Coppola began to film Apocalypse Now in February 1976. After 238 days in the jungle filming was complete, and millions of dollars had been spent (Marlon Brando was on set for three weeks at a million dollars a week). Actors had been replaced (Harvey Keitel by Martin Sheen) and they had all gone a “bit insane”.

Coppola’s wife Eleanor documented the entire production, objectively capturing things spiralling out of control in pursuit of a maverick vision. The only documentary in the season, this is one of the great insights into the mayhem of ‘painting with light.’
