Cacoyannis made his debut as a director in 1954 with the film “Windfall in Athens.” “Stella,” “A Girl in Black,” his trilogy “Electra,” “The Trojan Women,” and “Iphigenia” along with “Zorba the Greek” are but a few of his critically acclaimed films that became international box office hits. In 1955, he introduced Melina Mercouri in his film “Stella” and, throughout his career, he worked with such actors as Vanessa Redgrave, Irene Papas, Katharine Hepburn and Candice Bergen. Among other accolades, Cacoyannis was nominated for three Academy Awards, a Golden Globe, and two BAFTA awards (all for “Zorba the Greek”) and earned nine nominations and two wins at the Cannes Film Festival (for a number of his films).”
