Five-time Academy Award-winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu brings us “Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths”.

“Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths” is an epic, visually stunning and immersive experience set against the intimate and moving journey of Silverio, a renowned Mexican journalist and documentary filmmaker living in Los Angeles, who, after being named the recipient of a prestigious international award, is compelled to return to his native country, unaware that this simple trip will push him to an existential limit. The folly of his memories and fears have decided to pierce through to the present, filling his everyday life with a sense of bewilderment and wonder.

With both emotion and abundant laughter, Silverio grapples with universal yet intimate questions about identity, success, mortality, the history of Mexico and the deeply emotional familial bonds he shares with his wife and children. Indeed, what it means to be human in these very peculiar times.

Mexican actor Daniel Giménez Cacho plays Silverio Gama in an indelible performance. Shot on resplendent 65mm “Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths” marks Iñárritu’s first film to be shot in Mexico since 2000’s international sensation “Amores Perros”.
