Al Pacino honoured

Veteran actor Al Pacino has been honoured at the Venice Film Festival for his work as a moviemaker. Pacino is in Venice to promote his new directorial project Wilde Salome, a part-documentary about writer-poet Oscar Wilde and part-movie adaptation of his play Salome.

"We do know that he (Oscar Wilde) was... a very liberal thinker and a visionary in terms of his feeling for people and how he wanted society to be more humane," quoted Pacino as saying.

"Part of his sexuality was what they used against him. They wanted to silence him," he said. Pacino was awarded the Jaeger Lecoultre Glory to the Filmmaker Award Sunday night.
