Writer-director Gregory Nava, Gael García Bernal, cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto and Gabriel Figueroa Flores will celebrate the life and career of the renowned Mexican cinematographer on Sept 17.

The evening will feature an onstage discussion and excerpts from many of Figueroa’s greatest cinematic achievements leading into the exhibition later this month, Under The Mexican Sky: Gabriel Figueroa – Art And Film, co-presented by the Academy and the Los Angeles County Museum Of Art.

Figueroa, who lived from 1907–1997, is often referred to as The Fourth Muralist of Mexico and his work included María Candelaria, Enamorada, La Perla and Víctimas Del Pecado.
