Following its world premiere at the 2022 Venice International Film Festival, Netflix has revealed an official trailer for Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s newest directorial effort titled Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths. The film is slated to arrive in select theaters on November 18, followed by its streaming debut on December 16.
Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths is directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, The Revenant) from a screenplay he co-wrote with Nicolás Giacobone. The film is led by Mexican actor Daniel Giménez Cacho as Silverio Gama. He is joined by Griselda Siciliani, Ximena Lamadrid, Francisco Rubio, and more.
“Described as an epic, visually stunning, and immersive experience, the film is 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,” reads the synopsis.
“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.”
Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths was shot by Darius Khondji, with Oscar winner Eugenio Caballero set as its production designer and Anna Terrazas as its costume designer.
