Five-time Academy Award® winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu brings us Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths, an epic, visually stunning and immersive experience set against the intimate and moving journey of a renowned Mexican journalist and documentary filmmaker, Silverio Gama, played by Daniel Giménez Cacho. 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.

Shot on resplendent 65mm by Academy Award® nominee Darius Khondji (Amour, Se7en) and written by Iñárritu and Nicolás Giacobone (Biutiful and the Oscar®-winning Birdman: or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)), Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths features production design by the Oscar®-winning Mexican designer Eugenio Caballero (Roma, Pan’s Labyrinth) and costume design by Anna Terrazas (The Deuce, Roma).

This book is a spiritual journey, just like the film, evoking bewilderment and wonder. Formed by emotion, instinct and passion, the layout features striking unit photography, exclusive behind-the-scenes visuals of the cast and crew, and film stills that transport readers into the world of the film. Pages from both Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s own script notebook and the prop notebook used by the main character, Silverio Gama, are presented throughout the book, allowing for an intimate, one-of-a-kind experience. To further explore the complexities, universalities and impact of the film, original texts, in both English and Spanish, by writer Benjamín Labatut, journalist Juan Villoro and Iñárritu himself provide personal insights on the power of Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths.

The film debuted on Netflix on December 16, 2022.

It is the most personal project of [Iñárritu’s] entire filmography, a journey into himself, a deep dive into the ocean of memory, where the shadows of the past merge with our desires, fears, recollections and nightmares.
