91st Oscars Transcript: Foreign Language Film

SPEECH BY: ALFONSO CUARÓN, director
FILM: “Roma”

Thank you. Am I going to get subtitled as well? Thank you, Yalitza. Thank you, Marina. Thank you, Gabriela, Nico, all the cast and crew. I grew up watching foreign language films and learning so much from them and being inspired. Films like “Citizen Kane,” “Jaws,” “Rashomon,” “The Godfather” and “Breathless”. When asked about in the book about the New Wave, Claude Chabrol said, “There are no waves, there’s only the ocean.” I think that the nominees tonight have proven that we are part of the same ocean. I want to thank my family, Mexico, [unintelligible] beach where the film comes from. And also to Olmo, Bu, Jonás, to be the current that pushes my drift. Thank you so much.
