A World Unseen: A 44 Minute Documentary on the Making of THE REVENANT
The Revenant was EASILY one of my favorite movies of 2015. It’s also one of the most talked about productions of the year. Rumors of a ‘hellish’ 9 month shoot are certainly understandable given the conditions the cast and crew faced.
Difficult production or not, The Revenant is a gorgeous movie that literally makes you feel the elements Director Alejandro González Iñárritu and his team were up against.
The documentary below gives you a glimpse behind the scenes of the Oscar contender. It’s a 44 minute look at the challenges the crew overcame to produce a cinematic classic whether it wins best picture or not.

In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption. THE REVENANT is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award® winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel).” (YouTube)
