2019 Golden Globe Awards: Roma Wins Best Foreign Film

Rome wins the Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Golden Globes!

The film, shot in black and white with an almost entirely Mexican crew, marks Alfonso Cuarón first project since 2013’s Gravity. Set in 1970 and 1971 in Colonia Roma, a town in Mexico City, the film centers on Cleo, played by Yalitza Aparicio, a character based on Cuarón’s nanny, whose real name is Liboria “Libo” Rodriguez.

Cuarón recently talked about the film, “The whole film is a long flashback of my childhood. It was a whole process. The film was based on memory. I was not only recreating moments but [we] were shooting them in the place where they took place and reproducing the spaces to the inch. And also cast people that look alike to the original people 40 years ago. So, it was kind of an odd experience reliving those moments.”

Felicidades a Alfonso Cuarón!
