Alfonso Cuarón disappointed with the new Oscar standards
The filmmaker is currently an executive producer on The Disciple, a film helmed by Indian director Chaitanya Tamnahne
Alfonso Cuarón, who is vocal about the importance of diversity in cinema, has shared that he has mixed feelings about the recent inclusion standards for Best Picture. It may be noted that his film Roma was nominated under the same category two years ago.
“Everybody is trying to figure out ways of making more diverse cinema,” Cuarón said in an interview with AP News. “The interesting thing is that it’s not coming naturally. Everybody has to respond to outside pressures. That’s a little bit disappointing — that it needs to go through rules and regulations for things to happen, when it should just be a natural process of societal evolution that apparently is not happening.”
On the work front, Cuarón is an executive producer on The Disciple, a film helmed by Indian director Chaitanya Tamnahne.
