Film Director

Iñárritu has taken his time following up “Birdman” and “The Revenant,” which won him back-to-back Oscars for best director in 2015 and 2016. Since then, his only significant work has been 2017’s “Flesh and Sand” (“Carne y Arena”), a virtual-reality short giving viewers the perspective of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border with a coyote, which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017 and earned a special achievement Oscar in 2018. He returned last May to be the chair of the Cannes jury, becoming the first Mexican to hold that position in the fest’s 72-year history.  While claiming to be “dangerously and happily unemployed,” he’s said he has a new project gestating, so another run at awards gold may be in the offing.
