Martin Scorsese Princess of Asturias Award for the Arts 2018

Martin Scorsese (New York, 1942) was born into a family of Sicilian origin and grew up in the New York neighbourhood of Little Italy. He studied English Literature and Cinema Studies at New York University, a period in which he made numerous shorts and his first feature film, Who’s Knocking at My Door? (1967). In 1970, he worked as an assistant director and editor on the documentary Woodstock, subsequently achieving recognition by critics and the public with Mean Streets (1973), a film in which he directed Robert De Niro for the first time.
