Alejandro Inarritu, Emmanuel Lubezki, Legendary Team on Virtual Reality Short Film

After four years of development, Alejandro G. Iñárritu is commencing work on an experimental virtual reality 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.

Iñárritu and frequent collaborator cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki will experiment for their first time within a space narrative in this new visual medium. The film will mark Legendary’s largest step in the VR world.

The immersive virtual reality piece will explore the intense and excruciating experience of a group of immigrants and refugees crossing the border between Mexico and the United States.

Inarritu is coming off back-to-back best director Oscar wins for his work on New Regency’s “Birdman” and 20th Century Fox’s “The Revenant,” both of which were shot by Lubezki.

Fondazione Prada is an institution devoted to art and culture created by Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli. With the aim of experimenting with new visual languages, the company has presented shows by international artists, philosophy conferences, research exhibitions, and performing arts projects.

Inarritu is repped by CAA.
