Japanese movie director Takeshi Kitano was honored Friday with a lifetime achievement award on the twenty fourth Far East Film Festival in Italy for his contributions to the trade over greater than 30 years.

Kitano, identified by his stage title Beat Takeshi in Japan, was acknowledged with the Golden Mulberry Award for Lifetime Achievement for crafting “stories that were personal and universal, that amused and shocked and captivated audiences everywhere,” a presenter on the award ceremony mentioned.

“Many Italian film fans have grown up with his movies, the biggest Kitano film fan club is in Italy. It is a kind of Kitano religion here,” the presenter mentioned.
