Alfonso Cuarón to Shoot His Next Film in Mexico

September 12, 2016

When he won the Best Director Oscar in 2014 for his space thriller Gravity, Mexico's Alfonso Cuarón became the first Latin American to win the film world's top directing prize - the Acadeny Award.

Alfonso Cuarón, the director behind Children of Men and Gravity, is returning to Mexico this fall to start shooting a new, untitled project. He will be directing and also writing the film, which depicts a year in the life of a middle-class Mexico City family in the early 1970s.

Cuarón is partnering with Participant Media for the project, the studio that most recently produced The Light Between Oceans.

"This film is close to my heart and my first in Mexico since Y Tu Mamá También. I am thrilled to be making it with the Participant team," Cuarón said in a statement last week.

"Alfonso is a master storyteller, who breaks cultural boundaries around the world by skillfully connecting audiences through the power of cinema. We are elated to be joining him on this film," said Participant Media CEO, David Linde.

When he won the Best Director Oscar in 2014 for his space thriller Gravity, Cuarón became the first Latin American to win the film world's top directing prize. This was the first time he had taken home the golden figurine, though he had been nominated before.

In 2002, Cuarón's Y Tu Mamá También was up for the Best Writing and Original Screenplay Academy Awards and, in 2007, Children of Men was nominated for three Oscars: Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Film Editing.

Known for his ground-breaking use in the technique of continuous uninterrupted shots, Cuarón also directed A Little Princess and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
