Cacoyannis: paying homage to a legend
The Hellenic Club of Canberra will be screening Cacoyannis films for the month of October
The Hellenic Club of Canberra is hosting a tribute to internationally renowned director Michalis Cacoyannis (best known for directing Zorba The Greek) during the month of October.
One of his acclaimed films will be screened every Tuesday and Wednesday. Cyprus-born Cacoyannis debuted as an actor, but later decided to focus on directing. His first film Windfall in Athens marked the beginning of an international career in directing, among them Stella, A Girl in Black, A Matter of Dignity, Zorba the Greek and the trilogy of Electra, The Trojan Women, and Iphigenia. His films were regularly screened at the most prestigious international film festivals, receiving awards and distinctions.
Michalis Cacoyannis has worked with some of the best and most distinguished actors of his time, in Greece, Europe and Hollywood.
Michalis Cacoyannis has distinguished himself not only as an international filmmaker, but also as a stage and opera director, with critically acclaimed productions in Greece, the US, France and other European countries. He has published several screenplays, translated Shakespeare's plays into Greek and Euripides into English, and he has written the lyrics of some of the best-known and best-loved Greek songs.
In 2004, Cacoyannis established a charitable foundation in his name, which aims to support, preserve and promote the arts of theatre and cinema. For further information on the tribute, visit www.hellenicclub.com.au
