After a long time making movies in Hollywood, Alejandro González Iñárritu He returned to Mexico to give life to his new project, Limbo – 90%, but things are not going the way we expected. The Mexican has been recognized in all parts of the world for his ambitious vision regarding the seventh art, however, some scandalous accusations have appeared on social networks about the treatment that his extras gave him in the new film. The confusion among his followers is observed throughout the network.
Limbo, starring Daniel Gimenez Cacho, It is a film of which we do not have many details. We know that it was filmed in the Historic Center of CDMX and in San Luis Potosí, and that it required a significant amount of extras for some scenes of greater impact; several months ago leaked images of the filming were revealed in which we see Chub walking down the street and countless people on the ground, like victims of a massacre.
But in social networks it is being commented that working with Alejandro González Iñárritu (Dog loves – 92%, Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) – 91%, Revenant: The Revenant – 82%) is not as satisfying as you might imagine. Twitter account @_adrianavarela_ (now suspended for unknown reasons), published an extensive thread in which he claims to have worked as an extra in Limbo, exposing the alleged mistreatment of the Mexican filmmaker towards his employees. He maintains that the director was exploitative and completely insensitive to the basic needs of the staff, putting the vision of his film as well as his perfectionist style first:

What a courageous dog with Iñárritu. Hopefully in his next Limbo conference he will say how badly he treats people who come as extra and how miserable he is to record scenes FOR HOURS without breaks or to eat, or to go to the bathroom. Mothers perfectionist, and if something was not the way he wanted it was always our fault because as he says “extras are cancer” we do not know about professionalism, and he does not know empathy.
Martha Figueroa of the program Excuse me, rescued the story of the tweeter and also declared that Iñárritu is an exploiter; Until now, Alejandro González Iñárritu has not commented on the matter and, in fact, has not offered recent interviews about Limbo. The alleged extra mentions that the extras were even forced to remain in adverse conditions for long periods of time.
There were people of all ages, he never empathized with the elderly, nor with children, a production where everyone who participated was dehumanized, people who smoked during a shot had to do it until it was as he wanted. The calls were from 4 AM to 12 AM, without eating, without the right to go to the bathroom, without snacks, without rest because you are fed up with the same fucking position of wet, air, cold, I didn’t want to take breaks, even one staff resigned. […] There were people who got wet at 4 AM on the esplanade of the Zócalo and once it was wet they had to stay that way because the perfectionist man would take the same shot 40 times looking for the slightest mistake.
In social networks, some defended the story of Adriana and condemned IñárrituHowever, there were others who assured that working with the Mexican is a great privilege and that one must be professional regardless of the circumstances. It has been several years since we last had a movie of Alejandro And we’ll soon find out if you have what it takes to shine in your awards season. At the moment no release date has been issued for Limbo but it will surely stomp when the launch finally comes.
