An incredibly talented cartoonist, a gifted storyteller, delivering exciting messages with his dramatic stories, vivid characters and fatal conflicts, he is an outstanding emblem in world cinema. In 1982, Alan Parker achieved unprecedented success with "Pink Floyd: The Wall". His next film, "Birdy" (1984), was also well received and won him the Grand Prize of the Jury in Cannes. With two Oscar nominations for "Midnight Express" in 1979 and ten years later for "Mississippi Burning", his films "Fame", "Evita" and "Angel Heart" are among the landmarks in cinema of the 80's and the 90's of the twentieth century. In 2006, Sir Alan Parker was a special guest at the 10th Sofia Film Fest and was presented with the Sofia Award for his contribution to the art of cinema.
Goodbye, Sir Alan!
It was an honor for us!
May the light shines on your way to the stars ...
