Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu Is Making A VR Short Film About Immigration

Four-time Oscar-winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu has a surprising new project, a short film shot in virtual reality about immigration between Mexico and the US.

The Revenant’s director today announced that he will work on an “experimental” VR short film. Some details about the project was revealed. The press release states that a group of immigrants and refugees will make a perilous border crossing between Mexico and the United States. Iñárritu will collaborate with three-time Oscar winning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, who also worked on Birdman and The Revenant.

Iñárritu directed the Oscar-winning movie, The Revenant.

The director is commencing work on the experimental VR short film to be produced and financed by Legendary Entertainment and Fondazione Prada. ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm’s recently established Immersive Entertainment division, will build the virtual world and characters.

This means that the film will be a full-VR experience and not a simple 360° movie.
