This is part of Alejandro Inarritu's "Carne y Arena" (Virtually present, Physically invisible), a visual art installation debuting this week at the Cannes Film Festival.Inarritu, the Oscar-winning filmmaker of "Birdman" and "The Revenant," has been working on the exhibit for four years. Cannes artistic director Thierry Fremaux insisted Inarritu bring it to Cannes first after the filmmaker previewed it for him.Inarritu said he was struck by the stories of immigrants from Mexico and Central America while researching the border-crossing tale incorporated in his multinational drama "Babel". Inarritu is far from the only Hollywood filmmaker trying his hand at virtual reality.A close-up experience with the rangers of Garamba National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, it was fuelled by some of the same motivations as Inarritu's project in Cannes.Making "Carne y Arena" has convinced Inarritu of the medium's capabilities.
