The award-winning 2018 film Roma is a semi-autobiographical take on director Alfonoso Cuarón’s upbringing in the Colonia Roma neighborhood of Mexico City. The film stars Yalitza Aparicio and Marina de Tavira and follows the life of a live-in housekeeper of a middle-class family.
Yalitza Aparicio will be on campus on November 12th for a public conversation with Wellesley professors Irene Mata and Codruta Morari.
