Eleanor Coppola, Locating the 'Hearts of Darkness'

During the famously chaotic filming of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now, another director was at work on the set: Documentary director Eleanor Coppola, the auteur's wife. Her footage, along with cast and crew interviews shot a decade later, became the celebrated documentary Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse, which premiered on the Showtime cable channel in 1991. (This interview first aired on Jan. 24, 1992.)
