Francois Schuiten & Laurent Durieux The Conversation Movie Poster Release

For the first time, Nautilus Art Prints focuses on the cinema of Francis Ford Coppola.
With “The Conversation”, the publishing company brings to light a very seventies spy thriller, released two years after the Watergate scandal. The heavy atmosphere of the time and the hypnotic presence of Gene Hackman inspired Laurent Durieux and Fran├žoisSchuiten, two renowned Belgian artists who collaborate here this new print.
In collaboration with Francis Ford Coppola’s production company, American Zoetrope, Nautilus Art Prints and Mondo offer two screen prints (regular and variant).

The Conversation is a 1974 American mystery thriller film written, produced and directed
by Francis Ford Coppola and starring Gene Hackman with supporting roles by
John Cazale, Allen Garfield, Cindy Williams, Frederic Forrest, Harrison Ford, Teri Garr
and Robert Duvall.
The plot revolves around a surveillance expert and the moral dilemma he faces when
his recordings reveal a potential murder. Coppola cited the 1966 film Blowup as a key
influence. However, since the film was released to theaters just a few months before
Richard Nixon resigned as President, he felt that audiences interpreted the film to be a
reaction to the Watergate scandal.
