A portrait of Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa (1907-97).

Revered for the beauty and complexity of his cinematography, Figueroa had a long career in his homeland and Hollywood, working for top-drawer directors including Luis Bunuel, Emilio Fernandez, John Ford and John Huston. While he shot more than 200 films, here we only focus on his Mexican films from the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

Forty cameramen from different countries and generations discuss a wide range of topics relating to Figueroa's images, including the portrayal of emotion through faces, the expressionist terrain of black-and-white, and the future of cinematography in a digital age.
