I’m very sorry about the passing of Eleanor Coppola, wife of Francis Coppola.

On her own creative steam Eleanor is best known for having shot George Hickenlooper and Fax Bahr‘s masterful Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse, a saga of Apocalypse Now — arguably the best making-of-a-famous-movie doc ever made.

Wiki excerpt: “The documentary was begun by Eleanor, who also narrates the behind-the-scenes footage. Coppola turned her material over to Hickenlooper and Bahr in 1990. The pair subsequently shot fresh interviews with the original cast and crew, and then intercut them with Coppola’s footage.

“Hickenlooper and Bahr premiered Hearts at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival.”
