Alfonso Cuaron Interview for “GRAVITY”

Uploaded on Tuesday 1 October 2013


Alfonso Cuaron is one of those rare directors who can jump from genre to genre and does not miss a beat! From drama with “Y Tu Mama Tambien,” to fantasy with “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” (he changed the tone and course of the “Harry Potter” saga), to dystopian sci-fi thriller with “Children of Men,” Cuaron is consistent in becoming this generation’s cinematic storyteller. Now, with the upcoming “Gravity,” Cuaron challenges himself and his crew (and cast Sandra Bullock and George Clooney) to create a visually compelling movie that has a lot of emotional weight. But wait, there’s more, he teamed up with J.J. Abrams to come up with a new TV show that will blow your mind, the upcoming NBC series, “Believe.”

In this interview, we talked about:

*** How he broke technical and creative boundaries to create “Gravity”
*** It took him 4 ½ years to make the movie!
*** What was his interest in making “Gravity?”
*** The metaphorical possibilities of space – outer space is also the inner space of the characters
*** The film’s theme – you have to go through adversities to be reborn
*** The film’s central female character – rarely seen in this genre
*** Nurturing with Mother Earth in the background
*** Working with J.J. Abrams in NBC’s “Believe”

Have fun!
