Majid Majidi announces second India-set project
The Iranian director whose Beyond The Clouds was set in the country, says he's been inspired by the place and the people to make another film here
After his maiden India-based project Beyond The Clouds, Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi will be back in India soon to start working on his second film set in the country. The project is titled Gold Mine.
The Oscar-nominated director says “the ambience of India” and “wonderful relationship between humans and Nature” inspire him. The project will go on floors next year.
“The ambience of India is magical and incomparable... The undying spirit of people and their hope for life, in spite of all hardships, is unbelievable,” Majidi says. “All these inspire me to shoot my next film in India as well and be the narrator of this effort of men, women and children whose love for life encourages them to stay strong and rise over and above any hurdles that come in their path,” he adds.
