    The Oscar-Nominated Short Documentaries highlight the power of human determination, courage, compassion and optimism.

    The slate features the three films CWC originally screened at noon on February 22 – Program A – which many were unable to attend. Also included is the Oscar Winner, "The Lady in #6." The films are NR (not rated) but suitable for all audiences, middle-school and older, i.e.: PG-13.

    Cave Digger Cave Digger
    Jeffrey Karoff, USA, 2013, 39 min.

    Melding Art and Architecture with an incredible amount of determination, and using only hand tools — shovel, trowel and wheelbarrow — environmental sculptor Ra Paulette digs cathedral-like, surrealistic art caves into the sandstone cliffs of New Mexico. Each creation takes him years to complete, each is a masterwork and each is on private property — meaning we'll never see his work, except in this film.

    Facing Fear Facing Fear
    Jason Cohen, USA, 2013, 23 min.

    25 years ago a skinhead assaulted and severely beat a gay teenager. When they meet decades later, the process of repentance and forgiveness has a profound effect on both men. This fascinating human interest story demonstrates that human and fallible though we may be, we can face a nearly impossible decision and do the right thing.

    Prison Terminal Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall
    Edgar Barens, USA, 2013, 40 min.

    In the hospice unit of the Iowa State Penitentiary we share the final days of Jack Hall, an 82-year-old convicted murderer and decorated World War II combat veteran. A former violent drunk and racist, he dies with dignity in the arms of two African-American fellow inmates, volunteers who care for him with respect and compassion.  One of the most powerful, poignant and reverent films you'll ever see.

    Lady The Lady in #6:
    Music Saved My Life

    Malcolm Clark, Canada,
    2013, 39 min.

    In this inspirational and uplifting story, 110-year-old Alice Herz Sommer, the world's oldest pianist and oldest Holocaust survivor, shares her secret for a long and happy life and the importance of an optimistic outlook, music, and laughter.
