The first Trailer for Alfonso Cuarón Roma is here. His first project since the award winning Gravity, the film centres on Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a domestic worker in 1970’s Mexico. Working for a middle-class family, the film explores the social hierarchy domestic workers must face. As well as the hardships of domestic life, Roma is set against a time of political and social upheaval.
The director, famed for Gravity and Y Tu Mama Tambien, has described Roma as his most personal work to date. Inspired by the women who raised him, the project is a huge jump from his last space epic. Shot in striking black and white, the trailer reveals little about plot detail. The film will get a joint UK release in cinemas and Netflix.
Coming this December, are you excited for Roma?
