Alejandro González Iárritu is taking his talent to Netflix

The upcoming BARDO, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths will get a global theatrical run before it goes online.

A Polarizing figure, that of Alejandro González Iárritu. For some – Academy voters – he is the leading titan of modern cinema, creating maximum attention to heavy existential matters such as mortality and the usefulness of art. To others – film critics – he is a self-critical gasbag with an inflated sense of his own skill, substituting typical elements of the genre for control of tone and rigor of thought. Soon, these warring factions will have a chance to take it out once again. For starters, there have been Inaritu Wars.

Netflix issued a flashy press release this afternoon, announcing that they have secured the global rights to the upcoming Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths. The word-salad title returning to the mouth of Birdman or Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance might suggest he is moving in the vein of Hollywood, but in reality, he is going back to his roots.

The new film, his first since 2015’s The Revenant, will see the director return to his home of Mexico – last seen in his filmography in 2000 alongside Amores Perros. Described in the Bulletin as “a nostalgic comedy set against an epic personal journey”. The film follows an acclaimed Mexican documentary and journalist who also has a homecoming in the country he is away from for so long, triggering a personal crisis of identity, family, and memory.

Aside from the involvement of master cinematographer Darius Khondji, this time around there aren’t many bigger names in the mix than past stars Leonardo DiCaprio or Michael Keaton. Lead actors Daniel Jiménez Cacho and Griselda Siciliani are known throughout the Spanish-speaking world, but have little recognition elsewhere, and their casting hints at an escape from starpower for Roma-style living naturalism.

With the track Warp to Fall shooting underway, Netflix will be giving Inaritu’s latest global release in theaters next year before bringing the title online to its streaming library. At the end of 2023, take down the hatch and prepare for a new round of discourse, whatever it may be.
