BAFTA Screenwriters Lecture: Guillermo Arriaga
On Monday 26 September 2011 on very rainy London night, Mexican screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga spoke to a packed theatre at the BFI as part of this year's BAFTA Screenwriters Lecture series. He is famous for fragmentary, non-linear stories, as seen in Babel and 21 Grams. Both of these films were directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu.
