USC’s School of Cinematic Arts will honor filmmaker Costa-Gavras with the Eisenstein Award on Sept. 28.
Nod is presented to international artists who have made an invaluable contribution to cinema. Costa-Gavras, the Greek-French helmer of “Z” and “Missing,” will be the award’s second recipient. French director Agnes Varda won it in 2003.
A two-day festival of Costa-Gavras’ work will follow the award presentation. All of the films will unspool at USC’s Norris Cinema Theater on Sept. 28-29.
