Oscars: Alejandro Iñárritu's virtual reality installation 'Carne y Arena' to receive special award

The award will be presented to both Iñárritu and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki at the 9th annual Governors Awards on Saturday, Nov. 11. The duo has “opened for us new doors of cinematic perception,” AMPAS president John Bailey said. “Iñárritu’s multimedia art and cinema experience is a deeply emotional and physically immersive venture into the world of migrants crossing the desert of the American southwest in early dawn light. More than even a creative breakthrough in the still emerging form of virtual reality, it viscerally connects us to the hot-button political and social realities of the U.S.-Mexico border.”
