International Media Mourns Thodoros Aggelopoulos' Death

The news of the sudden and unfortunate demise of Thodoros Aggelopoulos on late Tuesday has been covered by international media, who are portraying the life and work of the deceased award-winning Greek filmmaker.
The UK Guardian daily made a report on the lethal road accident of Aggelopoulos and presented some of the key films that distinguished the filmmaker in the Cannes Film festival, and made him internationally recognized for his dreamlike style of shooting.
AFP has also made references to the abrupt death of the “emblematic figure of Greek cinema”, while the local newspapers have made extensive references to the filmmaker’s life and work. Huffington Post and Fox News received responses from their Athens correspondents informing them about the loss of one the most recognized Greek figures of modern times.
Aggelopoulos was severely hit by a motorcycle while trying to cross a street at the Keratsini region. He was shooting there for his new film “The Other Sea”, which would be his first production since 2008. The 77-year-old man suffered brain injuries and was taken to hospital, where he later died.
