Alfonso Cuarón Orozco was born on November 28th in Mexico City, Mexico. From an early age, he yearned to be either a film director or an astronaut. However, he did not want to enter the army, so he settled for directing. He didn't receive his first camera until his twelfth birthday, and then immediately started to film everything he saw. After finishing school, Cuarón decided to study cinema right away. His mother didn't support that idea of cinema, so he studied philosophy in the morning and in the afternoon he went to the C.U.E.C. (Centro Universitario de Estudios Cinematográficos). During that time he met Luis Estrada and together they made the short movie Vengeance is Mine. The film was in English, a fact which bothered many teachers of the C.U.E.C. The disagreement caused such arguments that in 1985, Alfonso was expelled from the university.
In 1991 was the premier of Only with Your Partner and the film had huge success. After that he made films Great Expectations (1998), And Your Mother Too (2001), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Children of Men (2006) and Gravity (2013). Gravity won 7 Academy Awards. Roma is his latest film.
