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.
