  • [01] Exhibition honors Hollywood art director Dean Tavoularis

  • [01] Exhibition honors Hollywood art director Dean Tavoularis

    Production designs from the incomparable Hollywood epics &quot;Godfather I and II&quot; as well as &quot;Apocalypse Now&quot;, among many others, went on display at a Thessaloniki museum over the weekend as part of an exhibition honouring veteran motion picture art director Dean Tavoularis.

    The exhibition, held at the Macedonian Museum of Modern Art, brought the Greek-American Tavoularis, his French actress wife Aurore Clément as well as legendary director Francis Ford Coppola to the northern Greek port city on the sidelines of the 46th annual Thessaloniki Film Festival.

    The 73-year-old Lowell, Mass. native along with Clément and Coppola -- who was accompanied by his family, including actress/director daughter Sofia -- will be honoured later on Saturday evening with the Golden Alexander Award by the film festival's organisers.

    Tavoularis, an Oscar-winning (co-shared for &quot;Godfather II&quot;) production designer and film director since the late 1960s, referred to his initial reservations during a first meeting with Coppola in the early 1970s, when the latter was looking for a production designer for the &quot;Godfather&quot;.

    Speaking at a standing-room-only press conference, Tavoularis explained that a young Francis Ford Coppola was bent on filming a &quot;gangster movie&quot; on-site in New York City and not in a movie studio. He quickly added that the meeting proved to be &quot;decisive&quot; for his life and career.

    The prolific art director later met his wife on the set of &quot;Apocalypse Now&quot;, Coppola's subsequent masterpiece.

    Coppola arrived in Thessaloniki from Romania, where he's filming &quot;Youth Without Youth&quot;, a work by late 20th century Romanian writer and historian Mircea Eliade.
