Alfonso Cuarón has selected Indian filmmaker Chaitanya Tamhane as his protégé in the Rolex Mentor & Protégé Arts Initiative for 2016–17, the watchmaker announced today. A philanthropic program pairing up-and-comers with established veterans, the Arts Initiative has been ongoing for more than a decade now. Tamhane won raves for his debut film “Court,” which premiered at the 2014 Venice Film Festival, and is currently at work on the screenplay for his sophomore effort.
“Court” appeared on many best-of lists following its theatrical release last year and served as India’s submission for the Best Foreign-Language Film Oscar, though it wasn’t ultimately nominated. Cuarón won Best Director at the Academy Awards two years ago for his work on “Gravity;” his other works include “Y Tu Mamá También,” “Children of Men” and the best “Harry Potter” film (“Prisoner of Azkaban,” natch).
Launched in 2002, Rolex’s program also pairs artists with apprentices in six other disciplines: architecture, literature, music, visual arts, theater and dance. Stephen Frears, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Martin Scorsese and Zhang Yimou have previously served as mentors.
