Title: Babel: On the Set with Inarritu – The Making of the Final Film in the Mexican Director’s Acclaimed Trilogy
Author: Eliseo Alberto
Review: You’ve seen the movie, now fans of the award-winning film Babel can get their hands on the book. An awe-inspiring photographic journey, Babel sees Mexican movie director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu join forces with photographers Mary Ellen Mark, Patrick Bard, Graciela Iturbide and Miguel Rio Branco to present cultural images and musings collected during the production of the film of the same name.
But far from a putting together a collection of snaps featuring behind the scenes Hollywood camaraderie, Babel provides an environmental portrait of the intercontinental locations featured in the production. Spanning Morocco, Mexico and Japan, the photographs concentrate on the native people of these countries, their daily lives and habitats, exploring further the social issues touched upon by the movie. Skilfully captured images therefore take centre stage throughout, accompanied by the director’s memories of the scene and filming. It’s a beautiful journey in a high quality package – perfect for the seasoned traveller, cinemagoer or photographer.
