Early life[edit] Alfonso Cuarón
Alfonso Cuarón
Orozco was born in Mexico City
Mexico City
on November 28, 1961, the son of Alfredo Cuarón, a nuclear physicist who worked for the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency
International Atomic Energy Agency
for many years. He has two brothers, Carlos, also a filmmaker, and Alfredo, a conservation biologist. Cuarón studied philosophy at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and filmmaking at CUEC (Centro Universitario de Estudios Cinematográficos), a school within the same university. There, he met the director Carlos Marcovich and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, and they made what would be his first short film, Vengeance Is Mine. Career[edit] Early career[edit] Cuarón began working in television in Mexico, first as a technician and then as a director. His television work led to assignments as an assistant director for several Latin American film productions including Gaby: A True Story and Romero, and in 1991, he landed his first big-screen directorial assignment. Sólo con tu pareja[edit] Sólo con tu pareja
Sólo con tu pareja
was a sex comedy about a womanizing businessman (played by Daniel Giménez Cacho) who, after having sex with an attractive nurse, is fooled into believing he's contracted AIDS. In addition to writing, producing and directing, Cuarón co-edited the film with Luis Patlán. It is somewhat unusual for directors to be credited co-editors, although the Coen Brothers
Coen Brothers
and Robert Rodriguez have both directed and edited nearly all of their films. Cuarón continued this close involvement in editing on several of his later films. The film, which also starred cabaret singer Astrid Hadad
Astrid Hadad
and model/actress Claudia Ramírez (with whom Cuarón was linked between 1989 and 1993), was a big hit in Mexico. After this success, director Sydney Pollack
Sydney Pollack
hired Cuarón to direct an episode of Fallen Angels, a series of neo-noir stories produced for the Showtime premium cable network in 1993; other directors who worked on the series included Steven Soderbergh, Jonathan Kaplan, Peter Bogdanovich
Peter Bogdanovich
and Tom Hanks. International success[edit]

Cuarón at San Diego Comic-Con (Estados Unidos)

In 1995, Cuarón released his first feature film produced in the United States, A Little Princess, an adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic novel. Cuarón's next feature was also a literary adaptation, a modernized version of Charles Dickens's Great Expectations starring Ethan Hawke, Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow
and Robert De Niro. Cuarón's next project found him returning to Mexico with a Spanish-speaking cast to film Y Tu Mamá También, starring Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna
Diego Luna
and Maribel Verdú. It was a provocative and controversial road comedy about two sexually obsessed teenagers who take an extended road trip with an attractive married woman that is much older than them. The film's open portrayal of sexuality and frequent rude humor, as well as the politically and socially relevant asides, made the film an international hit and a major success with critics. Cuarón shared an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay with co-writer and brother Carlos Cuarón. In 2004, Cuarón directed the third film in the successful Harry Potter series, Harry Potter
Harry Potter
and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Cuarón faced criticism from some of the more purist Harry Potter
Harry Potter
fans for his approach to the film. At the time of the movie's release, however, author J. K. Rowling, who had seen and loved Cuarón's film Y Tu Mamá También, said that it was her personal favorite from the series so far.[3] Critically, the film was also better received than the first two installments, with some critics remarking its new tone and for being the first Harry Potter
Harry Potter
film to truly capture the essence of the novels.[4] It remained as the most critically acclaimed film of the Harry Potter
Harry Potter
film franchise. Cuarón's feature Children of Men, an adaptation of the P. D. James novel starring Clive Owen, Julianne Moore
Julianne Moore
and Michael Caine, received wide critical acclaim, including three Academy Award nominations. Cuarón himself received two nominations for his work on the film in Best Film Editing (with Alex Rodríguez) and Best Adapted Screenplay (with several collaborators). He created the production and distribution company Esperanto
Esperanto
Filmoj ( Esperanto
Esperanto
Films, named because of his support for the international language Esperanto[5]), which has credits in the films Duck Season, Pan's Labyrinth, and Gravity. Cuarón also directed the controversial public service announcement "I Am Autism" for Autism Speaks
Autism Speaks
that was sharply criticized by disability rights groups for its negative portrayal of autism.[6] In 2010, Cuarón began to develop the film Gravity, a drama set in space. He was joined by producer David Heyman, with whom Cuarón worked on Harry Potter
Harry Potter
and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, the film was released in the fall of 2013[7] and opened the 70th Venice International Film Festival
70th Venice International Film Festival
in August.[8] On January 12, 2014, Alfonso accepted the Golden Globe Award in the category of Best Director. The film received ten Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. Cuarón won for Best Directing, becoming the first Latin American to win the award, while he and Mark Sanger shared the award for Best Film Editing. In 2013, Cuarón created Believe, a science fiction/fantasy/adventure series that was broadcast as part of the 2013–14 United States network television schedule on NBC as a mid-season entry. The series was created by Cuarón for Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television. In 2014, TIME
TIME
placed him in its list of "100 Most Influential People in the World" – Pioneers.[9] In May 2015 Cuarón was announced as the President of the Jury for the 72nd Venice International Film Festival.[10] On September 8, 2016, it was announced that he would be writing and directing Roma, a project focusing on a Mexican family living in Mexico City
Mexico City
in the 1970s. Production began in fall 2016.[11] The project will be produced by Cuarón, Gabriela Rodríguez and Nicolás Celis. On November 3, 2016, it was revealed that the crew was robbed on set during filming.[12] Personal life[edit] Cuarón is a vegetarian[13][14] and has been living in London
London
since 2000.[15] He was 20 when his girlfriend at the time became pregnant with Jonás.[13] He was married to Italian actress and freelance journalist Annalisa Bugliani from 2001 to 2008. They have two children: daughter Tess Bu Cuarón (born 2002) and son Olmo Teodoro Cuarón (born 2005). Filmography[edit] Feature films[edit]
