Shekhar Kapur Off To Us For Making Short Film On Gautam Buddha
It seems that the future of cinema is the digital medium and Shekhar Kapur seems to explore this all by himself. The director has flown to the US for making a short film on Gautam Buddha. The last full-length feature film that Shekhar made was ‘Elizabeth The Golden Age’ in 2007.
Speaking about his plans the director revealed, “It is actually a 12-minute virtual-reality film on Buddha’s enlightenment. I am making it because the dynamics and distending dimensions of the human emotion of compassion have always fascinated me”. He further said that he is working on a film on Bruce Lee. Talking about his film he said, “My film on Buddha addresses that reality”.
Further, the director said, “When people ask me why I haven’t made a feature film for so many years, I have a simple explanation. I’ve never seen myself as a filmmaker; I have always seen myself as a storyteller. It could be on the big screen or it could be on television or on Internet and phone”. Shekhar is also working on a film on compassion and he is very excited about it.
