WATCH: Director Alfonso Cuaron 'proud of the impact' of film 'Roma'

(Agence France-Presse) - March 3, 2019 - 2:57pm

LOS ANGELES, United States — Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron says his film "Roma" and its many nominations have "opened up a whole conversation that was so necessary" about the rights of domestic workers in both the US and Mexico, as he arrives on the red carpet ahead of the annual Academy Awards Monday (Philippine time) last week.

"Look, I think we are proud of the impact it has had for Yalitza Aparicio, the impact not only on the question of cinema but the social impact it has had, which has opened up a whole conversation that was so necessary. A conversation about the rights of domestic workers and about the organizations of domestic workers in both the United States and Mexico who are using Rome as a platform for their movement," Cuaron said. 

"Roma" triumphed at the Oscars, winning for best foreign film, best director and best cinematography.
