Charles Evans, the director of a documentary aimed at exposing big tobacco's systematic cover-up of scientific evidence showing nicotine to be addictive, has donated $15,000 to Daniel Pearl Magnet High School, officials said Monday.

The donation will be used to support the school's journalism offerings, the Los Angeles Unified School District said.

"We look forward to welcoming these new filmmakers and journalists into an industry that sorely needs young people with the idealism, skill and the passion for truth in reporting," Evans said in a statement.
