Personal Quote:

In recent years, I've obviously become more known for doing docs, which are a very different side of my brain. But in my mind they're all part of the same universe. They are all about stories from distant places and often outsiders taking on a corrupt system. See more »

Trivia:

Kapadia's documentary technique is to avoid the lazy trap of using a lot of talking heads, and instead to dig deep into the available archival material.
