Director Mullan wins top award at film festival

British director Peter Mullan’s film 'Neds' has won this year’s top award at Spain’s San Sebastian Film Festival.

The movie, a British-French-Italian co-production, is an insightful exploration of the violent upheavals of adolescence within the harsh environment of 1970s Glasgow in Scotland.

It tells the story of the struggle of a young John McGill to make his mark on life.

The best actor category went to Connor McCarron for his role as McGill.

Elsewhere, Nora Navas was voted best actress for her part in Spanish film Pa Negre.

The best director award went to Raul Ruiz of Chile for Misterios de Lisboa, a Portuguese production, while the festival jury’s special mention award went to Spanish film 'Elisa K'.
