With his latest and most personal work, ROMA, Alfonso Cuar贸n has solidified his reputation as one of contemporary cinema鈥檚 most versatile and compelling voices. Since his debut feature, S贸lo con tu pareja, made waves on the international festival circuit and became one of Mexico’s biggest box office earners in 1992 (despite its initial suppression by the government), Cuar贸n has tirelessly challenged the barriers of language and several distinct national film industries鈥攊ncluding Hollywood, the UK, France, and his native Mexico鈥攚ith a rich and varied body of work. This winter, the Film Society聽is honored to host Cuar贸n in person and bring聽together the director’s eight feature films: intimate dramas infused with humor and empathy, vividly stylized adaptations of beloved literary works, and technically groundbreaking global blockbusters that, taken together, offer insight into the mind of this visionary, inexhaustible filmmaker.
