Kevin Lee's documentary Unveil The Truth II: State Apparatus won the Grand Prize and best documentary at this year's Taipei Film Awards, which took place at the close of the Taipei Film Festival on July 19.

The win, which came with a cash award of NT$1m, marked the fifth consecutive year that the Grand Prize has gone to a documentary.
