Guillermo Arriaga is one of today's most original storytelling and screenwriting voices. As a screenwriter and director, Arriaga spins exhilaratingly complex, emotional and provocative tapestries of human lives under intense pressure. Arriaga, who was the International Association of Film Critics Latin American Personality of the Year in 2014, boasts a filmography that includes three collaborations as a screenwriter with three-time Oscar-winner Alejandro González Iñárritu ("Amores Perros," "21 Grams" & "Babel"), as well as "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada" with Tommy Lee Jones, which won the Best Screenplay award at Cannes; "The Night Buffalo" with Jorge Hernández Aldana; and "The Burning Plain," which Arriaga also directed, starring Charlize Theron, Kim Basinger and Jennifer Lawrence. Guillermo's most recent film, "Words With Gods" (2015), has been celebrated and screened at film festivals around the world this year.
Arriaga's Screenwriting Masterclass will focus on his distinct nonlinear way of storytelling that is always searching for the heart of human emotion: the challenges of communication, the importance of love, the consequences of our actions, the contradictions of human nature, the clashes between differing cultural points of view, and the enigma of contemporary isolation, both physical and emotional.
