Produced on November 28, 1961, in Mexico City, Mexico, Alfonso Cuarn helmed several picture and television jobs before directing the sexual road film Y Tu Mam Tambin. Cuarn’s globally successful space-based story, Gravity, premiered in 2013. He grew up in a picture-going family having a mom who supported a passion for the artwork and career exploration, as well as the youthful Cuarn became an enthusiastic picture fanatic himself. He attended film school inside the National Autonomous University of Mexico system, though was kicked out after working on a job in English. Co-written with Cuarn’s smaller brother Carlos, the movie was a success in their own state.

Going within an entirely different way, Cuarn and brother Carlos wrote the script for Y Tu Mam Tambin (2001), a road trip movie set in Mexico that profiled two young men as well as their sexual hijinks, matches of egotism and relationship to an old girl who travels with them. Cuarn subsequently led to one among the greatest fantasy franchises ever when he directed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, a critically well-received endeavor that focused on Potter’s relationship to at large sorcerer Sirius Black, played by Gary Oldman.

The director mentioned Oscar-nominated cinematographer Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki with whom Cuarn has often collaborated, no surprise seeing as though the two were in film school together as a leading contributor to their films’ total vision. The two have become known especially for riveting, constant takes, as seen in Children of Men as well as the 2013 autumn hit called Gravity.

For the technically advanced, visually sumptuous movie, which features two astronauts played by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney stranded in space, Cuarn and Chivo worked out a purposeful, elaborate filming groundwork and post production procedure. Having a record breaking introduction, Gravity held the No. 1 position for back-to-back weekends in the United States and garnered major international success. The film took home seven honours in the 2014 Academy Awards, including two for Cuarn, for best director and film editing.
