Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse – Screening

In the late 1970s, as renegade filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola struggles to complete an epic allegory of the Vietnam War, “Apocalypse Now (1979),” his wife, Eleanor, films his daily travails with a camera of her own.

The documentary based on her footage details the difficulties of the large production – from weather-related delays in the Philippines to star Martin Sheen‘s heart attack while filming. It provides unprecedented behind-the-scenes clips of one of Hollywood’s most-acclaimed films.

Admission: £3

Warning: Ages 15+. Contains scenes of violence and gore, nudity, drug use, strong language and scenes of animal cruelty.

Run time: 1 hour 36 minutes
