Alejandro González Iñárritu

While we patiently await Alejandro González Iñárritu to get moving on his next feature -- and he's got options with "The Revenant" and "The Flim-Flam Man" both brewing -- he's taken a quick time out to go experimental on us.

Teaming with Benjamin Millepied -- the choreographer best known as Mr. Natalie Portman who met her on the set of "Black Swan" -- he has directed "Naran Ja," a "Trash Humpers"-esque, super lo-fi, avant garde dance short that's....interesting.... We can't really describe it, you'll just have to watch it yourself, but the summary and video are below.

After being invited by Benjamin Millepied to a rehearsal for the L.A Dance Project's premiere performance, Oscar-nominated director Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Biutiful (2010), Babel (2006)) was inspired to make a video-exercise that documents movement and dance in an experimental way, with a stream of consciousness narrative. The result is NARAN JA (One Act Orange Dance).

The film, produced by The Amoveo Company, was shot outside of L.A. and features excerpts of the new choreography Benjamin Millepied crafted for Moving Parts. The story takes place in a secluded, dusty space and centers around LADP dancer Julia Eichten who seems to be on an eternal search... for herself.
