    Powerful, dramatically compelling, inspiring,
    emotionally gripping, thought-provoking

    This year's Oscar-nominated short documentaries come from a highly talented and accomplished group of filmmakers. In addition to multiple Oscar, Emmy, Peabody and best-of-fest wins and nominations, these directors, cinematographers and editors bring us intelligent, well-crafted films that address timely and important subjects.


    Inocente Inocente
    Directors Sean Fine and Andrea Nix, USA, 2012, 40 minutes, English

    Homeless. Creative. Unstoppable.

    In San Diego, a young teenage girl stares into a compact mirror. She paints a dramatic black swirl around her eye. She never knows what her day will bring, but she knows at least it will always begin with paint.

    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.


    Chalk King's Point
    Director Sari Gilman, USA, 2012,
    30 minutes, English

    A Tale of Love, Loss & Self-Preservation. King's Point tells the stories of five seniors living in a typical American retirement resort in Florida – stories that represent the complexities of aging in a society that extols the virtue of self-reliance. Arriving decades ago with their spouses by their sides and their health intact, they now find themselves grappling with the loss of loved ones, diminishing independence and the universal desire for human connection.


    Racine Mondays at Racine
    Director Cynthia Wade, USA, 2012,
    39 minutes, English

    When your life is at stake, why is losing your hair so hard?
    Every third Monday of the month, sisters Cynthia and Rachel open up their hair salon in brassy Long Island, called Racine, and offer free beauty services for women undergoing chemotherapy. As locks of hair fall to the floor, women gossip, giggle, weep, face their fears, and discover their inner beauty.

    Open Heart Open Heart
    Director Keif Davidson, USA, 2012
    40 minutes, in English, French and Burundi, with subtitles when needed.

    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, the kids have only months to live.


    Redemption Redemption
    Directors Jon Alpert and Matthew O'Neill,
    USA, 2012, 35 minutes

    Redemption introduces us to the "Canners" — the post-industrial gleaners of New York City whose treasures are in the trash. They are poor but proud New Yorkers, people who don't ask for a handout, people whose hands rake through the discards of our lives, maintaining their lives by collecting and redeeming aluminum cans and plastic bottles, one nickel at a time.
