Theodoros Angelopoulos


Born - 17 April 1935, Athens, Greece

Greek director known for leisurely-paced, beautifully photographed, atmospheric pieces which appealed to both the senses and the emotions.

He was working on a new film at the time of his death, which resulted from head injuries, sustained after being hit by a motor-cyclist while crossing the road.
