A SOUTHAMPTON Solent University lecturer’s hard-hitting documentary about water contamination in Africa has won a top award.

Associate Professor Tony Steyger, The Last Taboo’s director and Enterprise Fellow at the University, accepted the award at the British Film Institute in London.

He says, “I was delighted to receive an award for a documentary production which used the media skills of students and graduates here and in Kenya to say something important.”

The Last Taboo shines a light on the public health crisis in developing countries caused by open defecation. The lack of toilets and food and water contamination from excrement kills one child worldwide every 20 seconds – more than AIDS and Malaria combined.
