Director Kevin McMahon has won the Toyota Earth Grand Prix at TIFF – the Tokyo International Film Festival.
The 23rd installment of the international fest wrapped yesterday with several awards, including one for McMahon’s 2009 doc Waterlife, a film about the sorry state of the Great Lakes.
‘You have to take a film with a grain of salt,’ McMahon told the Tokyo Reporter. ‘That is, it’s hard to judge a film. But the environment has all sorts of difficult and complicated issues, and I am glad that I was able to express a part of them through my film.’
