On this episode of Cinedicate, we take a boat ride down the Vietnamese river in search of Charlie. Cam Lewis, a filmmaker and film professor at Cornerstone University, joins this week to talk about his latest feature-film When Icarus Fell. We also explore one of his favorite films, Apocalypse Now.
When Icarus Fell is an independent film that follows the storylines of different individuals that all intertwine as an ambitious politician attempts to construct a windmill that will affect the livelihood of migrant farmers.
From director Francis Ford Coppola, adapted from the novel Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, Apocalypse Now explores the horrors of war as Captain Willard (Martin Sheen, Wall Street, Judas and The Black Messiah, and The Departed) is given an assignment to assassinate rouge army officer Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando, The Godfather, Superman, and A Streetcar Named Desire).
