Making a film about being stranded in space can be almost as complicated as actually being stranded in space. Alfonso Cuarón describes the making of his most recent epic, Gravity -- a film co-written with son Jonás Cuarón -- as a series of miscalculations in some ways.
Cuarón started off as a filmmaker in Mexico, making student films, then directing TV and by making a splash on the international scene with coming of age flick Y Tu Mamá También. He took his dreams to Tinsel Town and directed films like Children of Men and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. All the while staying close to his family and friends.
George gets to the heart of the matter with this world-famous director, talking fearlessness, family and his latest film.
