Filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu isn't known for light-hearted films. When he wanted to try funny with Birdman, investors were not so sure. Iñárritu talks about how he works as an independent filmmaker in a world where popularity is king, and what he fears could be a grim, superhero-based future for the world of cinema.
