Last year, the filmmaker reflected on the idea of truth in his films, and claimed “all documentaries are fake”.
“There is more construction that goes into one of my documentaries than in a fiction film,” Kapadia told Submarine Channel. “There is the misconception that somehow documentaries are real. Everything is fake. Everything is constructed.
“You have to fake everything to make reality. The fact that there’s a camera present will irremediably change the situation.”
He added: “When I made documentaries, I wanted to make them feel like an action film or a drama. I’m always in between things, and I think art should be like that as well.”
Asif Kapadia also recently directed episodes three and four of David Fincher’s Netflix limited series Mindhunter, which are available to watch online now.
