Awards Academy Award for Best Cinematography

Guillermo Navarro, ASC, A.M.C. (born 1955) is a Mexican cinematographer. He has worked in Hollywood since 1993 and is a frequent collaborator of Guillermo del Toro and Robert Rodriguez. In 2006 he won the Academy Award for Best Cinematography for the film, Pan's Labyrinth. His work often features very vivid blues and yellows which often take up most of the image, and the film's grain structure often switches between well-defined and sharp, and somewhat smoothed over or very fine. His filmography runs the gamut from small arthouse films to big-budget action films. Navarro's directing debut is a 2012 music video for musician Mia Maestro titled "Blue Eyed Sailor", co-directed with media artist Juan Azulay, also featuring son Alvaro Navarro's cinematography.

Biography

Guillermo Navarro s'initie à la photographie dès l'âge de 13 ans. Son travail de photographe de plateau amorce son intérêt pour le travail de chef opérateur, auquel il s'initie plus particulièrement en Europe, et notamment à Paris sous la houlette de Ricardo Aronovitch. Il s'installe aux États-Unis en 1994.

En 1997, il signe la photographie du film Jackie Brown de Quentin Tarantino.

S'ensuivent alors d'autres films à succès comme Stuart Little ou encore Hellboy.

Comme chef opérateur, Guillermo Navarro devient très vite collaborateur régulier des réalisateurs Guillermo del Toro et Robert Rodriguez. En 2007, il obtient la consécration de la profession en remportant l'Oscar de la meilleure photographie pour Le Labyrinthe de Pan.

Depuis 2013, il est aussi réalisateur de séries télévisées ; il réalise notamment plusieurs épisodes de la série Hannibal. On lui doit également deux épisodes de la série Narcos diffusée sur Netflix.

Sa réalisation suivante est un téléfilm sur la baronne de la drogue Griselda Blanco intitulé Cocaine Godmother, avec Catherine Zeta-Jones dans le rôle-titre.

At the Tarasco bar in Mexico, an American man tells the story of how he witnessed a massacre in another bar committed by a Mexican with a guitar case full of guns. The bar's patrons are uninterested until the American mentions the name "Bucho." Meanwhile, El Mariachi has a dream of his encounter with Moco that left his lover dead and his hand shot. He is awakened by the American, who tells him to continue his search for Bucho at the bar. El Mariachi travels to the town and meets a child to whom he gives some guitar playing tips. At the Tarasco bar, El Mariachi engages in a tense standoff with Bucho's goons before a massive gunfight erupts. He kills everyone in the bar, but is followed outside by a man named Tavo. On the street, Tavo shoots El Mariachi twice before being killed himself. El Mariachi is then sheltered in the local bookstore by Carolina, the owner.

In 2013, Earth's coastal cities come under attack from Kaijus, colossal beasts that periodically emerge from a dimensional portal on the Pacific Ocean floor called "The Breach." To fight them, the Pacific Rim nations build the Jaegers, equally colossal humanoid war machines. Each Jaeger is controlled by two or more pilots whose brains are linked, called "drifting" to share the heavy mental load of operating the machine. The Jaegers are initially effective, but many are destroyed as the Kaijus grow more powerful and their attacks become more frequent. In 2025, the participating governments deem the Jaeger program unsustainable and discontinue it in favor of building defensive coastal walls. The four remaining Jaegers are redeployed to Hong Kong to protect the coast until the walls are completed. Jaeger commander Stacker Pentecost resolves to make a last-ditch attempt to end the Kaiju threat by destroying The Breach with a nuclear weapon, even though past nuclear strikes on the portal have been unsuccessful.
