Roma: Director Cuaron, Producer Linde Hope for Theatrical Release of Netflix Feature

Alfonso Cuaron is back at the Venice Film Fest with Roma, five years after opening Venice with 3D space thriller Gravity.

Roma is a much more personal film shot in black and white and based on growing up in Mexico City in the 1960s and 1970s.

The director and producer David Linde, CEO of film’s financier Participant Media, say Netflix will be releasing Roma both theatrically and on the streaming platform around the world.

“It’s a very harmonious distribution model,” Cuaron said at the press conference, where he was cheered by journalists.

Roma, which marks his return to Spanish-language filmmaking, world-premiered to strong critical acclaim.

Cuaron explained: “A film like this, in Spanish, indigenous, in black and white and a drama, not a genre movie, we know it would have huge difficulty just finding space to be shown in theaters, but of course, the ideal situation would be to show it in a theater on a big screen.”
