"There is something about Roma—it produces a reverberation, it lingers inside you, way after the movie has ended."

- Valeria Luiselli

Description

Acclaimed Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón’s most recent project, Roma, is a semi-autobiographical film focusing on a housekeeper for a middle-class family in Mexico City in the 1970s. A visual meditation, a soundscape of the oldest city in the Americas, Roma captures an intimate, unique time and space, where women provided the glue that kept the world together, yet were always invisible and inaudible. A mirror of the city it portrays, Roma is an emotional earthquake, a world about to shatter, held together by the equilibrium, tenderness, and strength of one woman, the beating heart of the story.

About the Author

Director, screenwriter, cinematographer, and editor Alfonso Cuarón studied philosophy and filmmaking at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. His feature-length directorial debut in 1991, Solo con tu pareja, was a hit in Mexico and brought him to the attention of Hollywood. Having been nominated several times, he won the Academy Award in 2014 for Gravity, the first Mexican director to do so. In 2014, Time magazine named him in its list of 100 Most Influential People.

Photographer Carlos Somonte has worked with filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón and theater producer Cameron Mackintosh. His work has been published in many international publications and books, featured in high-profile advertising and publicity campaigns, and exhibited in museums and galleries from Europe to Australia, India, China, and North America. He teaches photography at the Autonomous University in Cuernavaca, Mexico.

Author Valeria Luiselli holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, and a PhD in comparative literature from Columbia University. Her most recent book, Tell Me How It Ends: An Essay in 40 Questions, was based on her experiences as an interpreter for migrants seeking legal status in the U.S. Luiselli teaches literature and creative writing at Hofstra University.
