The director’s sci-fier “Children of Men” also won a prize in Venice, in 2006, for best cinematography, by Emmanuel Lubezki, who also lensed “Gravity.”

Cuaron’s latest work is science-fiction television show “Believe.” Cuaron directed the pilot episode and produced the entire series for Warner Bros. Television and J.J. Abram’s Bad Robot Productions. The show was broadcast by NBC in the U.S.
