Canadian journalist David McDougall was in the middle of a real riot as well as a movie riot during the filming of Togetherness Supreme.
The Santa Barbara International Film Festival named it Best International Film this week: "directed by Nathan Collett, and based on true events that show a street level vantage point of the Kenyan political riots of 2007."
David filed a dispatch that we aired last June 3.
