Iñarritu and Lubezki will create a Virtual Reality Short FilmBy Valeria Bigurra Peñavera
They will work closely with Lucasfilm to create the Project
After four years of development, the acclaimed Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu, along with the renowned cinematographer, Emmanuel Lubezki, will make a virtual reality short film.
The project will be produced and financed by Legendary Entertainment and Fondazione Prada, while ILMxLAB, the newly established Lucasfilm´s division of immersive entertainment, will be responsible for creating the virtual world and the characters.
To create the project they will use the latest technology, with which they will be able to experience for the first time, creating a story within a narrative space in this new visual medium.
Iñarritu and Lubezki have already worked together on previous occasions, and both have received awards that have recognized their talent, becoming two of the most recognized Mexican personalities in the international cinema.
This year, Lubezki became the first director of photography to win an Oscar three consecutive years, while Iñárritu also has two Oscars for best director thanks to his films "Birdman" (2015) and "The Revenant" (2016).
The short tells the story of a group of immigrants who will live the intense and exhausting experience of crossing the border between Mexico and the United States.
