Oscar Nominated Documentary Shorts

Wed February 23
2011, 7:00 & 9:30

With the growing popularity of the Oscar animated and live action shorts, we’ve now added the Oscar nominated DOCUMENTARY SHORTS as a supplement to the other shorts program.

Note: the documentary program runs longer than we anticipated (nearly 3 1/2 hours). People who come to the 7pm show will see the first four docs, then we’ll take a 10 minute break at 9:35, and at that point, seat people who come to 9:30 show. Then we’ll screen The Warriors of Qiugang. Once that is over we’ll take a 2-minute breakto give the folks who showed up at 7pm time to clear out, and then show the first four docs again.
