Scottish-born MICHAEL CANTON-JONES attended the UK's National Film and Television School and first hit the international film industry's radar in 1989 with his controversial feature Scandal starring Joanne Whalley, Bridget Fonda, John Hurt and Sir Ian McKellen. Based on the notorious Profumo scandal in 1960s Britain, the story of a government minister's affair with a prostitute shook British politics and seduced the world. Caton-Jones' film had the same effect on audiences worldwide.

Scandal was quickly followed by a raft of critically acclaimed projects including Rob Roy, Memphis Belle, Doc Hollywood, This Boy's Life starring Robert De Niro and introducing Leonardo DiCaprio and City By the Sea starring Robert De Niro and Frances McDormand.

Caton-Jones most recent effort was Shooting Dogs, shot entirely on location in Rwanda. Starring John Hurt and Hugh Dancy, Shooting Dogs is based on the true story of a Catholic priest and an idealistic young English teacher caught up in the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
