fyi: oscar documentary shorts

February 4, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Missed the Superbowl, but watched the amazing Oscar-nominated documentary shorts at the Hollywood Theater. My pick for the Oscar: Redemption, about the NYC “canners” who survive by scrounging recyclables. But all five nominees were very moving, including Inocente (about a homeless girl determined to become an artist), Kings Point (about a retirement community in Florida), Mondays at Racine (about a beauty shop that donates a day a month to women going through chemotherapy), and Open Heart (about a hospital in Africa that provides free treatment for poor victims of heart disease, often children). Update: Inocente won the Oscar.
