ENST Film Screening "Apocalypse Now" 2:00pmWarch Campus Center 204 - Cinema Apocalypse Now is a 1979 American epic war film directed, produced, and co-written by Francis Ford Coppola. The screenplay adapts the story of Joseph Conrad's novel Heart of Darkness, changing its setting from the late 19th century African Congo to the Vietnam War. The film revolves around Captain Benjamin L. Willard (Martin Sheen) on a secret mission to assassinate Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando), a renegade who is presumed insane.
This film screening is for the course: Wilderness in the North American Imagination. Given the resurgence of interest in the Vietnam War, with the recent release of Ken Burn's documentary series, and the critique that has followed, Apocalypse Now continues to provide a compelling look at the wilderness of war.
