The two-time Oscar award Alejandro G. Iñárritu has undertaken the construction of a new virtual reality experimental short film produced and financed by Legendary Entertainment and Prada Foundation after four years of research. The design and virtual characters will be produced by LMxLAB, the new Department of Immersive Entertainment production company Lucasfilm.
The topic of this immersive virtual reality project explores the intense and difficult experience of a group of people crossing the border between Mexico and the United States. It will be featured on world premiere during the spring of 2017 in the Fondazione Prada venue in Milan.
Using the latest technologies, Iñárritu and his longtime collaborator, Emmanuel Lubezki, will work for the first time in an experimental narrative within a new visual medium.
