BARDO, FALSA CRÓNICA DE UNAS CUANTAS VERDADES
by Alejandro G. Iñárritu

( 2022, Mexico , 174')

Bardo is a nostalgic comedy with an epic journey as its background. It is an immersive, visually stunning experience that contrasts the intimate, heart-rending story of its protagonist. Silverio Gama is a famous Mexican journalist and documentarist living in Los Angeles. After receiving an important award, he must return to his native country. He will soon discover that this supposedly short trip will test him and his existence. The irrationality in his memories and in his fears infiltrates Silverio’s present, filling his daily life with a sense of wonder and disorientation. The man will scan his past, looking for certainties, while he questions identity, success, mortality, Mexican history, and his familial relationships.
