An in-depth interview with Greek-French filmmaker Costa-Gavras (Z, Missing) from TIFF 2012.
Costa-Gavras is a Greek-French filmmaker who is commonly associated with thrillers concerned with political stories, though his oeuvre is much more varied in style and theme. Still perhaps best known for Z (1969) and Missing (1982), two political thrillers of the highest order, Gavras’ filmography also includes a recurring interest in the holocaust (Music Box (1989) and Amen. (2003)), the media (Betrayed (1988) and Mad City (1997)), nationhood (Hanna K. (1983), Eden is West (2009)), as well as a recent interest in economic stories told with back comedy: Le Couperet (2005) and Le Capital (2012). He is currently the president of the Cinémathèque Française, a position he has held twice and spanning ten years.
