ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece's culture minister says Greek-French film director Costa Gavras has died in Paris at the age of 85.

Culture Minister Mysini Zorba announced the filmmaker's death in a post on Twitter, noting that Gavras died in France.

Gavras often tackled political issues in his films. He was best known for "Z," a 1969 film which was critical of the Greek dictatorship that ruled the country between 1967 and 1974.
