‘This way to approach it pushes you to be absolutely naked, honest, and clear as hell, and present in your position… the way you make, it will be forever.’
Writer-director Alejandro Iñárritu has had enormous success with a handful of exquisitely crafted films – Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel, and Biutiful. Even though most widely known for his filmmaking, Alejandro’s education began in theatrical production, which he drew on to create the critically and commercially successful Birdman, continuing a pronounced trend of filmmakers using intensely personal experiences to unlock rich, unexpected stories like Whiplash and St Vincent.
Alejandro talks to David Poland about the journey, about his depression leading to Birdman, the production, and more.
