Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu: Reality Is More Interesting Than Pixels

Filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu took on a mountain of a task when making his new film, The Revenant. Choosing to shoot the period film chronologically, out in the wilderness, and with only natural light meant that the production often came across hurdles--specifically weather-related ones. For example, a major storm blew through when the story was still set in autumn, and then the ice melted in the middle of what was supposed to be a major winter moment.

Criticized at points for his unconventional filmmaking feat, Innaritu tells Indiewire, "I can’t imagine David Lean justifying why he went to the desert to shoot Lawrence of Arabia! I was very surprised. People have been doing things in the pixel world so much, they suddenly have forgot that the reality is still available for us and it’s much more interesting and complex than the pixel world we have created. People are surprised, in shock. 'You shot real locations, with natural light?' They can’t believe. They're used to going to the supermarket, where the big red apples look incredible but when you buy them they're tasteless. When you get an apple that is real, it looks more suspicious and not as perfect but then we taste it: it’s incredible, it's a really real apple!"
