‘Bardo‘s Alejandro G. Iñárritu On “Nature Of Being An Immigrant” – Contenders – Deadline

Bardo, directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, documents one man’s rediscovery of culture as he leaves Los Angeles and returns to Mexico. After receiving a prestigious award for his work in journalism and documentary film, Silverio (Daniel Giménez Cacho) is suddenly forced to re-examine his Mexican roots. Upon arrival, he struggles with embarrassing memories from the past and an existential crisis.

González Iñárritu really began to think about the nature of immigration and belonging when he created Carne y Arena, a virtual reality installation that gave him the opportunity to speak with more than 500 immigrants crossing the border. “There was a very, very deep call about the nature of the immigrant,” he said at Deadline’s The Contenders Film: Los Angeles event on Saturday. “What we had in common was nostalgia, melancholy – all the things you lose when you leave your country.”

Silverio represents González Iñárrita through the story, so the director needed to find the perfect person. “He found so many coincidences between us,” said Giménez Cacho. “Once it was set up for me, it was really easy because I didn’t have to build or build the character. Although it is Alejandro’s personal story, it has become a very personal story of mine.”

Ximena Lamadrid, who plays Silverio’s daughter Camila, immediately found parallels with her own life. “I’m Mexican, but I grew up in Dubai, then I lived in New York,” she said, “and then I came to Mexico about four years ago. So I finally joined… [and when] we were filming a movie, I was reconnecting because Camila wanted to reconnect.”

Creating a surreal world Bardo was a challenge for the craft team, so González Iñárritu’s direction was key for costume designer Anna Terrazas, production designer Eugenio Cabellero and sound designer Martín Hernández, who were also on the panel. “The costumes were to contribute to this epic dream and make this transition from reality to dreams,” Terrazas said. “Our approach to this was through the use of color.”

Caballero added, “To have all that fluidity, we also had to be very precise in how we planned the film.”

Hernández said, “For me, the film is more of a concept album. I feel like just put the needle on the vinyl and let it go. … It’s a lot about getting carried away by the sound. It wouldn’t have been possible without Alejandro’s need to go into detail.’

Check back on Monday for the panel video.
