Short films are fascinating'

Slumdog Millionaire’ star Freida Pinto, who has also featured in films like ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ and ‘Immortals’, says working in a short film is “fascinating” as it allows you to tell a story in less time.

“Short films are very fascinating because we don’t get the comfort of like two hours feature to tell the whole story and develop it. So you pretty much have to be very spot on in a short film to tell the whole story,” Freida, who starred in the short film ‘Black Knight Decoded’ said.
‘Black Knight Decoded’, released in November last year, imagines a rich narrative around the Black Knight satellite.

“I was actually headed back into the sci-fi world. In America, there are many people who believe in the Black Knight theory and they believe in the extraterrestrial world. It’s very, very big in America. In a way for me to find comfort in it and understand this other world which I didn’t know was very fascinating,” Freida said.

“As actors, we always like to do things that we haven’t done before. It’s a great way for us to learn the material and understand a world which we are not very familiar with,” she added.
