ALFONSO CUARON (Director) made his American directorial
debut with the critically acclaimed film "A Little Princess,"
which won him the L.A. Film Critics New Generation Award.
Born and reared in Mexico City, Cuaron studied filmmaking and
philosophy at the National University of Mexico. He worked as
an assistant director on many American films shot in Mexico and
directed Mexican television before helming his first feature,
"Solo Con Tu Pareja" ("Love in the Time of Hysteria").
The unusual comedy about AIDS was made on a budget of only half
a million dollars and became the highest grossing film in Mexico
in 1992. Cuaron shared an Ariel (Mexican Academy Award) for screenwriting.
The film garnered a great deal of attention for Cuaron in Hollywood.
Cuaron's direction of "Murder Obliquely," an episode
of the Showtime series "Fallen Angels" starring Laura
Dern and Alan Rickman, earned him a CableACE Award for Best Direction
in 1993. He also produced the feature film "A Long Way to
Tijuana" with Emmanuel Lubezki.
