Awards Spotlight: Alfonso Cuarón, the Fearless Leader

Awards Spotlight: Alfonso Cuarón, the Fearless Leader

Like Sandra Bullock’s character in “Gravity,” writer-director Alfonso Cuarón is resilient, never one to back down to a challenge that others
may deem impossible.

Following his beloved apocalyptic thriller “Children of Men,” Cuarón
decided that for his next project, he wanted to go to space. The problem
was, to get him there new technology would have to be invented. Instead
of throwing in the towel, Cuarón and his team worked tirelessly for
four and a half years to make Cuaron’s dreams a reality.

Cuarón is among the 16 actors and directors we featured over the last eight weeks with original photography by Daniel Bergeron and video shot by our partners at Movies On Demand.
