This paper examines themes prevalent in the works of Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu, particularly familial bonds, responsibility, memory and legacy. Through a lens of hauntology, a term first coined by Jacques Derrida in reference to the persistent or haunting qualities of social, cultural or political ideas, this analysis considers the “ghosts” of Iñárritu’s films and the demands they make on the living.
