Steven Soderbergh is set to lead a discussion with Francis Ford Coppola and about the process of creating the Apocalypse Now Final Cut (2019) in a programme to be broadcast on YouTube on 3 June.

"Restored from the original negative for the first time ever, Apocalypse Now Final Cut is Coppola's most realized version of the film, which was nominated for eight Academy Awards, won three Golden Globes (Best Original Score, Best Director, and Best Supporting Actor - Motion Picture, 1980), and is one of AFI's top 100 films," reads the film's description.

While presenting both of the film's versions (2019 and 1979), Coppola will also speak about "why the time was right for [him] to do this now, forty years after the original version and eighteen years after Apocalypse Now Redux," reads the description under the scheduled video on YouTube.

Provided and curated by the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, the discussion will be made available during the Global Film Festival (29 May-7 June) on the festival's YouTube channel.

Titled “We Are One: A Global Film Festival,” the initiative brings together movie programmes curated by 20 major international festivals including the Tribeca Film Festival, Sundance, Berlinale, Cannes, Venice, Toronto, San Sebastian, Mumbai, Marrakech, and BFI London Film Festival.
