In 1990 Jonathan co-produced the acclaimed feature documentary 'Mana Waka' directed by Merata Mita. He received the Prix Jean Mitry in 1993, the main award at the Italian Film Festival, in recognition of his activities in safeguarding and prizing film heritage. He also won the Best Documentary or Feature category of the New Zealand Radio Awards.
