Oscar-winning director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, the filmmaker behind "The Revenant" and "Birdman," has created an interactive experience that puts the viewer literally in the footsteps of border-crossing immigrants.

The film — “Carne y Arena” (Flesh and Sand) — debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and is currently being presented at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
