A 'Split' second with M. Night Shyamalan

Culture
23 identities live in Kevin's body. Who are you? Man, I went on too long. He's done awful things to people and he'll do awful things to you. Why did I choose to do Split? So Split was actually a story from awhile ago that I've been wanting to make. And these last couple of movies I've been making, kind of smaller, kind of funny slash scary movies, and this tone of like dark humor is something that I find really, really provocative right now. And it's something that I'm interested in doing. And this idea really lent itself to that. Okay. And Anya, I mean, you're character doesn't really have a lot of fun. Was it a kind of a fun experience for you? I mean, it was amazing. I was learning so much every day. Working with James in such close proximity, it's really like an acting master class. He's just bouncing around from so many different things. Working with Night is unbelievable, very specific, demands excellence, which I really thrive in. I love that environment, but. Yeah no, we had to have a good time because it's a dark film. Otherwise you wouldn't really want to go to work. Alright. So this is a film about a mental health issue. Were you concerned about portraying mental health, were you worried that maybe there's some suggestions that this kind of story might stigmatize mental health. How did you approach that? Yeah I mean, you know it's By the end of the movie, you feel great empathy for him.>> Yeah.>> Every single human being that is watching it is rooting. I know it's strange. I don't want to give anything away. Right.>> But, its breaking with convention and taking darkness and talking about humanity and complexity. And talking about trauma. I'm making a main stream movie about trauma. I love to [UNKNOWN]. These kind of [UNKNOWN] movies with real real drama. Real conversations about life and you come away with great empathy for those individuals. And It's I'm strangely, you know conflicted and inspired. Okay. Speaking of real things. I mean you both have, in terms of your back ground you living in Argentina and all around the world. Looking at sort of this is a story about someone who has divided personalities within themselves looking at the world. Do you see little bits of division Are you concerned about the kind of division that we are seeing in the political, cultural and social landscape, that we are seeing at the moment? You know I am a super optimist. Likewise. And I feel like this is an inevitable moment of having everyone dealing with globalization. It's inevitable. This conversation Had to have it, have to happen. This is a last moment of, can we have it back the way it was, and the answer to that is, no, you can't. This just right here. You're seeing movies about an Indian and Argentinian. That's just His life is not gonna get, it's gotta go back the way it was. I don't wanna say that's bad and we're good or anything like that. I understand, there's a loss. There's a loss of the way it was, and I can understand where they're coming from. But the reality is that 20 years from now, The world is gonna be a very homogenized place and you're gonna see everyone in everywhere.
