Film Director

Cuarón has now won the Oscar for best director for starkly different films — 2018’s “Roma,” a low-key, semi-autobiographical, black-and-white piece set in Mexico City circa 1970, and 2013’s “Gravity,” a big-budget, 3D action melodrama set in outer space. But that’s par for the course in a career that’s seen the auteur move seamlessly from romantic dramas (2001’s “Y Tu Mamá También”) to fantasy spectaculars (2004’s “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”) to dystopian thrillers (“Children of Men”). On the small screen, he created NBC’s sci-fi series “Believe” (2014), a collaboration with J.J. Abrams. And Cuarón surely cleared room on his mantel — which also holds Oscars for cinematography (“Roma”) and editing (“Gravity”) — to accept LACMA’s Art + Film Gala honors this fall.
