Theo Angelopoulos: The Great Poet of Cinema

The 24th of January marked the 8th anniversary since the tragic death of the acclaimed Greek film director Theo Angelopoulos. He was killed by a motorcycle while he was attempting to cross a busy road in Piraeus. 

Being one of the last and most characteristic representatives of modernism in Cinema, Angelopoulos was, without any doubt, the most internationally respected Greek filmmaker and one of the greatest directors of his generation. He received numerous awards with the most notable being the prestigious Palme d’Or award at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival for his remarkable film “Eternity and a Day”.
