Beginning September 22 and running through February of 2014, LACMA will host "Under the Mexican Sky," an exhibition co-presented by the Academy highlighting the prolific and award-winning Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa. His career spanned 50 years and over 200 films. Clips below.

Recognized as one of the most important cinematographers of the 20th century, Figueroa collaborated with artists such as Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco, and filmmakers like Emilio Fernandez and John Ford. Nominated for an Oscar for John Huston's "The Night of the Iguana" (1964), Figueroa won awards at Cannes, a Golden Globe and won best cinematography each year at the Mexican Ariel Awards from 1947 to 1951. 

He worked on seven films by Luis Bunuel including "Los Olvidados" (1950) and "The Exterminating Angel" (1962).

The exhibition features film clips, paintings, photographs, posters and documents drawn from Figueroa’s archive, now owned by the Televisa Foundation. In addition, the exhibition will include works by contemporary artists and filmmakers that draw from the vast inventory of distinctly Mexican imagery associated with Figueroa’s cinematography.
