<em>Boost</em> costar Nabil Rajo, the nephew of a major Eritrean filmmaker, moved to Canada at the age of six.

 

That’s because tonight, major prizes went to immigrants from the Korean peninsula, Africa, and Iran.

 




 

Boost’s Nabil Rajo won the Canadian Screen Award for performance by an actor in a leading role for playing a teenage car thief in Montreal.

 

 

He moved to Canada at the age of six from Eritrea.

 




 

Ava, directed by Sadaf Foroughi, who won for best first feature film.
