Christian pierces mysticism’s ‘Veil’

World Brief

Set designer Roger Christian will helm an English-lingo movie on Hindu mysticism, a subject that fascinates him, for Bollywood film company Creative Eye.

The $3 million movie, “Behind the Painted Veil,” is the story of a London-based femme scientist’s journey in India, Christian said.

Christian, who won an Oscar for set decoration for “Star Wars,” said he is heavily influenced by Indian mythological characters and by the teachings of Bud-dhism and Hinduism. “There’s a certain mysticism to India which Americans are missing out on, which is why they are coming here in droves.”
