Alejandro G. Iñárritu: Humanity is First
This week, the FoST Podcast is celebrating a very special occasion: our 100th episode. Since early 2020, the show has featured conversations with extraordinary storytellers from a broad range of disciplines, all of whom are pushing creative and technological boundaries and reinventing the traditional forms of narrative. For this milestone, we’re honored to interview Alejandro Gonzáles Iñárritu, the renowned filmmaker behind such critically acclaimed works as Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) and The Revenant. He also created the immersive installation Carne y Arena, which uses VR and multisensory elements to powerfully convey the experience of immigrants at the US-Mexico border. Alejandro represents what we aspire to at FoST: someone who believes in using new technology not for its own sake, but in the service of telling more powerful, empathetic, and human stories.
