Mexican writer/director Alfonso Cuaròn makes movies to cherish. He’s an artist more interested in slow cooking a work and only serving it when it’s absolutely perfect. Even those expecting greatness from this preternaturally talented will be shocked at how expansive and emotional his new film, Roma, really is.

He has taken the opportunity to plunder the archives of his own memory and tell the lightly fictionalised story of a maid working for a well-off family in Mexico City in the early 1970s. It doesn’t cleave to conventional storytelling modes, instead charting the heady peaks and traumatic troughs of a life lived in an era of social and political tumult.

 This issue is a monument to the monument, exploring the hours of preparation and self-examination that go in to the production of a personal epic.
