Athens born Panos Koutras is a pioneer of Greek DIY cinema. He studied at the London International Film School and at the Sorbonne, and has directed many shorts, including The Fall and Rise of Lydia Von Burer, which in 1991 won the first prize at the Festival Du Cinema Méditerranéen. In 1995, he founded 100% Synthetic Films in Athens, and started working on his first feature film, The Attack of the Giant Mousaka (2000). His second feature film, Real Life (2004), became a critics' favorite in Greece, where it won the National Critics Award in 2004. Since making its premier at the 59th Cinema Festival in Berlin in February 2009, Strella has participated in more than twenty International Festivals, and won Best Movie Awards in Tel Aviv and Oslo and a Best Actress Award in Lisbon. Koutras has been hailed by the French press as “the new Almodovar” of Europe.
