Watch: Francis Ford Coppola on the Future of Cinema, Marlon Brando and Regrets


Francis Ford Coppola is among the few living filmmakers to whom “inimitable” truly applies. A recent chat with Insdorf for 92Y’s Reel Pieces series spans his life and career, from mounting the titanic production of “Apocalypse Now” to his latest project “Distant Vision,” a live semi-autobiographical novella-length film wrought in real-time on the 6,000-square-foot soundstage at Oklahoma City Community College. The live cinema project screened earlier this month.

Highlights include a reminiscence of his grandfather, Agostino, an assessment of the future of film and a deep-dive into Marlon Brando, who ran afoul on the set of “Apocalypse Now” and who, as told by Brando himself in Stevan Riley’s innovative documentary “Listen to Me Marlon” (July 29), actually took the script from Coppola’s hands and rewrote it.
