Pablo Larrain Matte was born on August 19, 1976 in Santiago, Chile, the son of law professor (and later Independent Democrat Union senator) Hernán Larraín, and Sebastián Piñera's former minister of Housing and Urbanism, Magdalena Matte. He studied audiovisual communication at the University for the Arts, Sciences, and Communication in Santiago.


He is a co-founder of Fábula, a company in which he develops his cinematic and advertising projects.

He directed his first feature film in 2005; it was officially released in March 2006 and won international acclaim after winning several prizes at international film festivals, especially those of Cartagena and Málaga. His following films consolidated his international success.

In 2011 he began to direct a television series, Profugos.

His fourth feature film is No, in which Gael García Bernal plays the role of the owner of an advertising company who runs a campaign to vote "No" in the 1988 plebiscite that was designed to keep Augusto Pinochet in power. No was screened in the Directors' Fortnight section at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival where it won the Art Cinema Award. The film was also nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 85th Academy Awards.

In 2011 Larraín co-directed the television series Prófugos, distributed by HBO Latin America.

Larraín has said, "In Chile, the right, as part of the Pinochet government, is directly responsible for what happened to culture during those years, not only by destroying it or restricting its spread, but also through its persecution of writers and artists." He stated that "Chile found itself unable to express itself artistically for nearly twenty years" and also felt that "the right wing throughout the world is not very interested in culture and this reveals the ignorance that is probably theirs, because it is difficult for someone to make the most of something or to enjoy it if you have no knowledge of it".

In 2013 he was named as a member of the jury at the 70th Venice International Film Festival.

On March 24, 2014, The Wrap reported that Larraín is in negotiations to direct a new film version of Scarface for Universal Studios, with Paul Attanasio writing the script and 1983 version producer Martin Bregman helming the project. The new version will be set in modern-day Los Angeles and would revolve around a Mexican immigrant rising in the criminal underworld. However, Larraín left the project.

In 2016, Larrain reteamed with Bernal for Neruda, a biographical account of the exile of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. That same year, Larrain made his English-language debut with the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis biopic Jackie, starring Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, Richard E. Grant, Billy Crudup, and John Hurt. Both films received critical acclaim, with Jackie scoring numerous accolades, including Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations for Portman.

He is married to the Chilean actress Antonia Zegers, with whom he has two children: Juana (2008) and Pascual (2011).
