SCOOP PIC: Director Brillante Mendoza was conferred the title Chevalier (Knight) in the Order of Arts and Letters in a reception held in Makati City led by French ambassador Gilles Garachon last night, January 23. In his acceptance speech, Direk Brillante said, "Today, I am being conferred the recognition from the country that gave us the earliest filmmakers in history, Auguste and Louis Lumiere.
