According to IndieWire, Iñárritu made the decision to shorten the film following its screening at the Venice and Telluride Film Festival. “The first time I saw my film was with 2,000 people in Venice,” the director told IndieWire. “That was a good opportunity to watch it and learn about things that could benefit from being a bit tied down, adding a scene that never made it on time, and changing the order of a thing or two. Little by little, I tightened it up, and I’m really excited.” thus”.
Bardo follows a fictional Mexican journalist and documentary filmmaker who returns to his home country after receiving a prestigious international award.
