Mexican cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto has garnered his second Academy Award nomination for Best Cinematography for Martin Scorsese’s “Silence.”

Rodrigo Prieto has worked with some of the biggest names in filmmaking industry the last two decades, such as Spike Lee, Curtis Hanson, Ang Lee, Pedro Almodóvar, Alejandro González Iñárritu and Martin Scorsese, among others.

The story is based on Shusaku Endo’s 1966 novel and is set in the 17th century when two Portuguese priests, Father Rodrigues and Father Garupe, travel to Japan to find their mentor, who disappeared and supposedly renounced his faith. The Japanese government, fearful of colonial powers, has outlawed Christianity, and the priests’ mission is a dangerous one that shakes the idealistic Rodrigues to his core.
