Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and his cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki created a VR project that puts you in the desert with Latin American immigrants under assault. Alejandro G. I–arritu's "Carne y Arena," by the Oscar-winning director of "Birdman" and "The Revenant," is a multi-platform experience that includes a VR film; it is so sprawling the festival installed it in an airplane hangar 20 minutes outside downtown Cannes. The project has both Hollywood bona fides - it was partly funded by the studio heavyweight Legendary Entertainment - and the stamp of the art house community, for which Cannes is a holy site.
