In the 1970s, Dutch photographer Charles 'Chas' Gerretsen suddenly became world famous with his then small oeuvre. Privateer from a young age and former war photographer, he was invited by Francis Ford Coppola to capture everything on the set of Apocalypse Now because of his wartime experiences. Most of his work on the legendary set has never been seen before. Until now. In honor of the 40th anniversary of Apocalypse Now, Rotterdam-based cinema KINO Rotterdam and the Nederlands Fotomuseum joined forces to unearth the archive of Gerretsen and produced a documentary together. With Dutch Angle: Chas Gerretsen and Apocalypse Now, director Baris Azman tells the story of Gerretsen himself, while at the same time exhibiting his haunting and visceral work on the film-set that provides a fresh new angle on what is widely regarded as one of the best films ever made. The documentary contains an in-depth interview with Gerretsen and more than 100 pictures of the stellar cast including Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper and Martin Sheen. It even features images of deleted scenes.
