MH370: ‘The Vanishing Act’ director reveals “I want the truth to come out”

It has only been three months since MH370 disappeared over the Indian ocean, yet film director, Rupesh Paul, has already managed to create a feature length film based on his version of the events.

The film, which took only six days to shoot, will be pitched at this year’s prestigious Cannes film festival. When probed on why he felt the film was necessary, Mr Paul responded; “everyone in the world, they want to know what happened. Personally if you ask me, I want the truth to come out.”

The controversial film has caused an uproar, with many feeling that it has been made far too soon.  The comments displayed under the trailer on YouTube demonstrate the anger felt, one viewer responded;  ‘Trying to make money whilst families of the people on board are still left wondering where they have gone, disgusting.”

However, Rupesh doesn’t feel that there is any need to worry about the families of the victims, because he will ‘ensure that they will not be affected’. Instead, he suggests his biggest challenge is people not believing his version of events; ‘If you’re saying a theory and suddenly the flight is found and it’s totally the opposite, your investment will be wasted.We will be fools. That’s the biggest challenge I’m facing.’
