Greece's award-winning director Theo Angelopoulos died on Tuesday after being hit by a motorcycle while crossing a street, public television NET reported. He was 76.

Angelopoulos died of cerebral hemmorage at a hospital where he was transferred following the accident.

Angelopoulos became an emblematic figure of Greek cinema beginning in the 1970s. His "Eternity and a Day" won the coveted Palme d'Or prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1998.

He directed more than a dozen films, most of them examining society in contemporary Greece.

Born on April 27, 1935 Angelopoulos studied law and had first wanted to become a writer or a poet.

Among his films are "Megalexandros" which received the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1980 and "Ulysses' Gaze" which received the Grand Jury prize at Cannes in 1995.
