Renowned Italian-American director, screenwriter, and producer Martin Scorsese is one of the biggest names in filmmaking history. From classics like Goodfellas (1990) to his most recent The Irishman (2019), Scorsese has the ability to keep an audience captivated.
So we are more than thrilled to hear that he will be releasing a new short film he created in isolation.
Martin Scorsese has announced a new short film, and we won’t have to wait long for its release!
Part of a BBC series titled Lockdown Culture, the short film will mark the season finale. Set to air in the UK on the 28th of May, we will only have to wait until the end of this week to get a dose of Scorsese brilliance.
So it may not be as glamorous as some of his big features, and Leonardo Di Caprio won’t be making an appearance, but we can rest assured that he will deliver something good with a track record as impressive as his. The film will be very much related to the current world climate in the midst of a global pandemic, with the storyline centred around what Scorsese has learnt throughout the outbreak and forced isolation caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
“What I look forward to in the future is carrying with me what I have been forced to learn in these circumstances,” commented Scorsese. “It is the essential. The people you love. Being able to take care of them and be with them as much as you can.”
With restrictions being lifted and social distancing regulations in public areas relaxed, it is a welcome reminder to ensure that we are still doing our best to guarantee the health and safety of the people around us.
