Oscar Tune Up: Academy Award Nominated Short Documentaries

  • Tuesday – Thursday, February 5-7, 7:30pm

Redemption redemption

Redemption is a documentary about New York City’s canners – the men and women who survive by redeeming bottles and cans they collect from curbs, garbage cans and apartment complexes. You’ve seen them combing through the trash, but never got to meet them. The film is an unexpected and intimate look at post-industrial gleaners, struggling at the edge of our society.

Directors: Jon Alpert & Matthew O’Neill USA 35min.

 

Open Heartopen heart

Eight Rwandan children leave their families behind to embark on a life-or-death journey seeking high-risk heart surgery in Sudan. Their hearts ravaged by a treatable disease from childhood strep throat, they have only months left to live. Open Heart reveals the intertwined endeavors of Dr. Emmanuel, Rwanda’s lone government cardiologist fighting to save the lives of his young patients, and Dr. Gino, the Salam Center’s head surgeon, who is fighting to save his hospital, Africa’s only link to life-saving free cardiac surgery for the millions who need it.

Director: Kief Davidson USA 39min.

 

 

 

Inocenteinocente

Inocente is a personal and vibrant coming of age story about a young artist’s determination never to surrender to the bleakness of her surroundings. At 15, Inocente refuses to let her dream of becoming an artist be caged by being an undocumented immigrant forced to live homeless for the last nine years. Inocente is both a timeless story about the transformative power of art and a timely snapshot of the new face of homelessness in America: children. The challenges are staggering, but the hope in her story proves that the hand she has been dealt does not define her, her dreams do.

Directors: Sean Fine & Andrea Nix Fine USA 40min.

 

 

Kings Point kings point

In the 1970s and 80s, hundreds of thousands of senior citizens migrated from New York City to Kings Point, a typical retirement community, located just outside West Palm Beach, Florida. Lured by blue skies, sunshine, palm trees, and the promise of a rich social life, they bought their way to paradise for just a $1,500 down payment. Now, as an aging community faces its own mortality, paradise has begun to exact a higher price. Through the experiences of six longtime residents, Kings Point captures both the allure and the darker complexities of living in a world where ‘nobody gets too close.’ Poignant, funny and dark, Kings Point is a deeply empathetic portrait of the last act of the American Dream.

Director: Sari Gilman USA 40min.

 

Mondays at Racinemondays at racine

Every third Monday of the month, two bold, brassy sisters open the doors of their Long Island hair salon to women diagnosed with cancer. As locks of hair fall to the floor, women gossip, giggle, weep, face their fears, and discover unexpected beauty.

Director: Cynthia Wade USA 39min.
