Due to the impending storm, Alfonso Cuarón is no longer able to travel to NYC. He will still introduce the screening via Skype. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Adapted from a 1992 P.D. James novel of the same name, Children of Men is set in a dystopian Britain on the brink of bleak demise. The human race has been ravaged by a plague of sterility and the youngest person in the world has just died at the age of 18. As desperation sets in, a lone pregnant woman must be transported to safety to ensure the future of humanity. This science fiction political thriller, directed and co-written by Alfonso Cuarón, was one of the most acclaimed films of 2006 and is remembered for its stirring performances by Clive Owen, Julianne Moore, Michael Caine, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and others, as well as its distinctive filmmaking technique. Children of Men received three Academy Award® nominations: Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, and Best Film Editing.
