Costa-Gavras, first filmmaker to win Catalonia International Prize

Greek-French director Costa-Gavras has been awarded the 29th Catalonia International Prize, thus becoming the first filmmaker to receive an honor that has previously recognized such world-class figures as Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai, English writer Doris Lessing and Burmese politician Aung San Suu Kyi.

Costas-Gavras (short for Konstantínos Gavras) received the award from the hands of the Catalan President Carles Puigdemont on Monday July 7 at a ceremony in Generalitat Palace, the headquarters of the Catalan government.
