Martin Scorsese Filming Isolation Short For BBC

Martin Scorsese filming isolation short for BBC

While fans may have to wait for the Oscar winner’s next theatrical effort, Martin Scorsese (The Irishman) is getting back behind the camera in a sense for a self-shot short filmed from his New York City home as part of BBC’s Lockdown Culture with Mary Beard, according to Deadline.

The short, which will also feature Oscar nominee Lee Daniels (The United States vs. Billie Holiday) explaining the creative opportunities the current shutdown in Hollywood has created, will primarily explore Scorsese diving on what the lockdown and isolation has meant to him.

What I look forward to in the future is carrying with me what I have been forced to learn in these circumstances,” Scorsese said. “It is the essential. The people you love. Being able to take care of them and be with them as much as you can.

The special, a spin-off series of the network’s flagship arts program Front Row, will be the final episode of the series and is set to also feature guest artists Gillian Wearing and Michael Landy in their first collaboration in over 20 years, photographer Don McCullin reflecting on his life-risking career, Deborah Frances-White, comedian and host of The Guilty Feminist podcast, and eminent statistician Professor David Spiegelhalter. Previous episodes of the series included guest appearances from Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale), who delivered a homespun puppet show, sculptor Antony Gormley and Icelandic-Danish visual artist Olafur Eliasson.

Martin Scorsese makes a wonderful end to the series,” Beard said in a statement. “We see him at home, thinking about lockdown through the lens of classic movies, like Hitchcock’s The Wrong Man. But what’s really clever is that this great Hollywood luminary also gets us to look at Hitchcock again and afresh through the lens of our current predicament. I was absolutely over the moon when he agreed to do it for us. It feels a bit like hosting a little premiere! And it all contributes to a pretty amazing finale.

The episode is currently set to premiere in the UK on May 28 on BBC Two.
