CANNES, France, May 27, 2007 (AFP) - US director Gus Van Sant on Sunday won this year's extra-special 60th anniversary prize for his film on a teenage skate-boarder's dark secret, "Paranoid Park".

Portraying young Americans is "a calling", the director said at Cannes, and the teenage hero of his newest movie -- in Van Sant tradition a first-time actor -- is in deep trouble after accidentally causing a man to be sliced in two.
