Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Bardo Second Trailer Goes Homeward Bound


Seven years after his Oscar winning The Revenant, Alejandro G. Iñárritu is going homeward bound with Bardo. Netflix have now released the film’s second Trailer ahead of it’s cinematic release next month.

Daniel Giménez Cacho is Silverio a renowned Mexican journalist. He finds himself  on a existential journey,  taking him back to his own home town. Which sees him question his own identity.

The film looks imaginative, trippy and as we’ve said personal to the filmmaker. The latest trailer highlights the lead character’s self reflection before reality kicks in. The question we all ask is Who are we, where are we, why are we? Could Iñárritu be onto another winner with Bardo?

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 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.

The rest the film’s cast includes Griselda Siciliani, Ximena Lamadrid, Iker Sanchez Solano, Andrés Almeida, and Francisco Rubio.

Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths will get a limited UK and Irish cinema release on 18th November. The film will will then premiere globally on Netflix from 16th December.
