Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on movie-making and his film 'Picture Claire'] Often when you are doing something you have no idea. You know it is a handsome production. You knew it was well-performed. But there is this sort of mercurial thing. The bird sings or the bird doesn't sing. In our case the bird didn't sing. You just hope till the very end that people say "Oh, it's great." See more »

Trivia:

After Roadkill won the award for Most Outstanding Canadian Film at Toronto's Festival of Festivals, McDonald earned considerable notoriety by announcing that he would spend the $25000 prize on "a big chunk of hash". See more »
