Set to the Beatles tune 'I Am the Walrus', the new trailer for Alejandro G. Iñárritu's 'Bardo' is a trippy adventure into one man's mind.
The director of 'Birdman' and 'The Revenant' helms the upcoming Netflix movie starring Mexican actor Daniel Giménez Cacho.
The film received a six-minute applause in its three-hour world premiere at this month’s Venice Film Festival. The director cut 22-minutes of the film since then, bringing the run time to about 2 and a half hours.
'Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths', to give it its full title, follows the journey of Silverio, a renowned Mexican journalist and documentary filmmaker living in Los Angeles.
After being named the recipient of a prestigious international award, Silverio is compelled to return to his native country, unaware that this simple trip will push him to an existential limit.
The folly of his memories and fears have decided to pierce through the present, filling his everyday life with a sense of bewilderment and wonder.
Shot on resplendent 65mm by Academy Award nominee Darius Khondji ('Amour', 'Se7en'), Iñárritu wrote the film alongside Nicolás Giacobone.
'Bardo' marks Iñárritu’s first film to be shot in Mexico since 2000’s international sensation 'Amores Perros'.
Check out the trailer below.
'Bardo releases in select cinemas November, on Netflix from 16 December.
