The Oscar-winning director’s new comedy has a tentative release date for next year.
Academy Award-winning Mexican director Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s new project recently titled Bardo (or False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths) has officially wrapped production in the director’s native country. This film is Iñárritu’s first feature project after the 2017 virtual installation project Carne y Arena.
Bardo has been described as a “nostalgic comedy” which sets a contrast to Iñárritu’s previous dramatic films like The Revenant and Biutiful but follows on the line of the Oscar-winning best picture Birdman. The film will focus on a famous Mexican journalist and filmmaker who returns to Mexico at a moment of identity and existential crisis which is making him question everything about his life, memories, and the current reality he inhabits.
