Watch Fiona Banner's Heart of Darkness online until 30th June - the first ever performance of Orson Welles' screenplay

June 28, 2012 by Kay

Fiona Banner directs Orson Welles' screenplay Heart of Darkness, 'the greatest film never made'.

Orson Welles wrote a screenplay based on Joseph Conrad's novel Heart of Darkness in the late 1930s. It would have been his first film but it was rejected by the studio RKO, and he went on to make Citizen Kane instead. At the time the script was considered too political, too expensive, and too uncompromising artistically, not to mention its narrative parallels with the rise of fascism in Europe. Today other parallels could be drawn.
