Cesar Charlone

Cinematographer, 'Blindness'

The 2002 film “City of God” heralded the emergence of not one but two major talents from South America: Brazilian helmer Fernando Meirelles and his gifted Uruguayan d.p., Charlone. The film earned each an Oscar nom, while their follow-up feature, “The Constant Gardener,” earned them BAFTA nods. With their latest collaboration, “Blindness,” Charlone switches gears from his kinetic, color-enhanced pyrotechnics to a more rigorously stylized aesthetic: evoking the sensation of blindness. He reportedly used milk, white paint and water to enhance the excessive light of his washed-out imagery — an effect that was toned down after the pic’s premiere in Cannes.
