MariaCandelariaPhotofestAs we continue our romance with Gabriel Figueroa’s cinematography, the fourth film in our series gives us the arresting landscapes and emotive close-ups that made Figuera a legend. Indeed, María Candelaria won Figueroa the prize for best cinematography at the 1946 Cannes Film Festival and still stands as one of the most beautiful films in all of Mexican film history.
