Carlos Saura

Carlos Saura, born on Jan. 4 1932, in Huesca, Spain, the son of an attorney and his pianist wife. A professional still photographer from age 18, he enrolled at Madrid's Instituto de Investigaciones y Experiencias Cinematografistas in 1953. While there, he directed an amateur short, then a graduation short. He stayed at the school as a teacher through 1963. He next directed a medium-length documentary, then turned out his first feature, La Caza (The Hunt, 1966), that Saura first grabbed the world's attention. The strict censorship imposed by the Franco regime caused Saura and other liberal-minded filmmakers of his generation to camouflage controversial themes behind a net of hints, allusions, symbols, and parables. Saura's international reputation grew with every film. He won prizes at significant international festivals. The most Spanish of Spain's directors, Saura has been his country's leading filmmaker for more than two decades. Several of his films of the 70s starred his longtime companion Geraldine Chaplin. He wrote all of his own screenplays, alone or in collaboration.
