Roma: Cuaron’s Personal Film is Centerpiece of 2018 N.Y. Film Fest

Alfonso Cuaron’s autobiographical family drama Roma will be the Centerpiece movie of the 56th New York Fest, on October 5.

Roma is produced by Esperanto Filmoj and Participant Media.

Netflix will launch Roma on its streaming service and distribute it theatrically around the world.

Shot in black and white, Cuaron’s personal film is set in Mexico City in the early 1970s as a middle-class family is quietly and unassumingly held by its beloved live-in nanny and housekeeper, portrayed by Yalitza Aparicio.

M.Y. Film Fest director Kent Jones said, “I was absolutely stunned by ‘Roma’ from beginning to end — by the craftsmanship and the artistry of everyone involved, by the physical power and gravitational force of the images, by the realization that I was seeing something magical: a story of ongoing life grounded within the immensity and mystery of just being here on this planet. Alfonso Cuarón’s film is a wonder.”
