Founded in 2001, Scottsdale International Film Festival is an annual five-day destination event that connects audiences with award-winning cinema from around the globe. The festival has presented more than 500 films, ranging from major Academy Award winners to undiscovered indie gems, to more than 90,000 patrons.
The most personal project to date from Academy Award-winning® director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men, Y Tu Mama Tambien), ROMA follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker from a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City. Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s. Cuarón’s first project since the groundbreaking Gravity in 2013, ROMA will be available in theaters and on Netflix in December.
