Carne Y Arena Seasonal Staff

Legendary Films, Emerson Collective and PHI Studio are coming to Dallas to present the virtual reality experience Carne y Arena created by director Alejandro G. Iñārritu. Based on true accounts, Carne y Arena is a virtual reality installation where the lines between subject and bystander are blurred and bound together, allowing individuals to walk in a vast space and thoroughly live a fragment of the immigrant’s personal journey. Carne y Arena holds the distinguished honor of being the first ever VR project to receive an Academy Award — “in recognition of a visionary and powerful experience in storytelling.”

CARNE y ARENA is produced by PHI Studio, Emerson Collective, Legendary Entertainment, and Fondazione Prada and presented in Dallas in association with the Nasher Sculpture Center and The George W. Bush Presidential Center.
