Amores perros brought cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto to the attention of the world film community. His work with director Alejandro González Iñárritu on the feature brought him several honors, including the Silver Ariel Award (Mexico's equivalent of the Academy Award) and the Golden Frog Award at the Camerimage International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography.
His subsequent films as cinematographer have included Michael Cristofer's Original Sin, Julie Taymor's Frida (for which he was nominated by his peers, for the American Society of Cinematographers Award), Curtis Hanson's 8 Mile, and Spike Lee's 25th Hour.
Mr. Prieto traveled to Cuba with director Oliver Stone to shoot Comandante, the documentary on Fidel Castro. The two next went to the Middle East to film a documentary on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Persona Non Grata. Their next project together is the epic feature Alexander.
He studied at Mexico City's Centro de Capacitacion Cinematografica. Prior to Amores perros, he shot 12 Mexican feature films in a decade, winning two previous Silver Ariel Awards for his work on Carlos Carrera's Un Embrujo and Daniel Gruener's Sobrenatural.
