This conversation occurs between Brook and Oscar-winning Scottish film director Kevin Macdonald and is moderated by Euan Kerr. Macdonald has had an extraordinary career since receiving an Academy Award for his film One Day in September (1999). Establishing a strong track record in documentaries and feature films, the 42-year old filmmaker received a BAFTA for his next film, Touching the Void (2003), before directing Forest Whitaker in an Oscar-winning performance as Idi Amin in The Last King of Scotland (2006). His latest film, the taut thriller State of Play (2009) features Russell Crowe, Rachel McAdams and Helen Mirren. Kevin Macdonald is also the author of Emeric Pressburger: the Life and Death of a Screenwriter (1994) and Imagining Reality (2005).
