Born in Mexico City in 1961. He made his debut in the film world as assistant director on several North American films shot in his country. He also worked as a director for Mexican TV before directing his first feature film, Sólo con tu pareja (Love in Time of Hysteria, 1991). This unusual comedy about AIDS was made with a budget of only half-a-million dollars, a factor which caught the attention of Hollywood.

A Little Princess (1995), his second feature, marked his directorial debut in the USA. This film was a great hit when screened at San Sebastian Festival. He later made an adaptation of Dickens’ Great Expectations (1998) with a top-line cast.

Y tu mamá también (And Your Mother Too, 2001), starring Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna and Maribel Verdú, was screened at San Sebastian Festival in an Anoeta Velodrome packed to the hilt and attended by Cuarón himself, who thanked the audience for its enthusiasm. He was once again approached by the big studios to direct Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) and his last big success to date is the disturbing futuristic tale Children of Men (2006), screened last year as part of Zabaltegi-Pearls. He also directed one of the episodes of Paris, je t’aime (2006).
