Dr. Francis And Mr. Coppola
Filmfest 2015

German Age Rating

Francis Ford Coppola‘s career was like a roller coaster ride. On the one hand, he was one of the New Hollywood’s most respected storytellers and directors and on the other, he was a producer who never shied from taking risks. He was either at the top of his game or he was down and out. This documentary sheds light on these two sides of Coppola as a filmmaker, but also his delight in and passion for innovation and his pioneering role in exploring the technical advances of the medium.


This film will be screened with PHENOMENAL VISIONS ON THE WAY TO HELL - THE FILMS AND STRUGGLES OF MARTIN SCORSESE (45 Min.).
