THE EAGLE

KEVIN MACDONALD won an Academy Award as director of One Day in September, which was voted Best Documentary Feature in 2000.

The native of Glasgow, Scotland has made a host of nonfiction films, both shorts and features. He has explored subjects ranging from silent film star Eric Campbell to the Kindertransport rescue missions to rock star Mick Jagger to war criminal Klaus Barbie.

Mr. Macdonald's 2003 feature Touching the Void became the highest-grossing British documentary in U.K. boxoffice history. The film won the Evening Standard and BAFTA Awards for Best British Film. His first non-documentary feature was The Last King of Scotland. Forest Whitaker's performance as Idi Amin earned the actor the BAFTA and Academy Awards for Best Actor, among other honors. The movie additionally won BAFTA Awards for Best British Film and Best Adapted Screenplay (Jeremy Brock of The Eagle and Peter Morgan), as well as BAFTA (Scotland) Awards for Best Film, Best Screenplay, and Best Actor (James McAvoy). Mr. Macdonald was named Best Director at the British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs), and cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle (of The Eagle) won the Best Technical Achievement BIFA.

He next directed State of Play, starring Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck, which earned him a London Film Critics Circle Award nomination. Currently, he is at work directing Life in a Day, the first user-generated feature-length documentary, which will world premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and which will showcase footage shot around the world on July 24th, 2010 and submitted for inclusion in the feature.

Mr. Macdonald is the grandson of Emeric Pressburger, renowned for his filmmaking partnership with Michael Powell. One of his earliest documentaries, The Making of an Englishman, was about his grandfather.
