Oscar-Nominated ANIMATED short films 2013 @ Nuart, 2/11/13 at 7:40 p.m.

Now Playing at the Nuart Theatre

Don't miss this rare opportunity to see all five Academy Award nominees in the category of Best Animated Short and more! This year's program will be hosted by last year's winners: William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg, directors of "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore." Program includes: "Head Over Heels" (UK), in which a couple who have grown apart (he lives on the floor and she on the ceiling) seek a way to put their marriage back together; "Maggie Simpson in 'The Longest Daycare' " (USA), in which Maggie, longing to be grouped with the gifted children at the Ayn Rand Daycare Center, finds her destiny by rescuing a lonely cocoon from Baby Gerald; "Paperman" (USA), the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City who only has his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get the attention of the girl of his dreams; "Fresh Guacamole" (USA), in which we learn how to transform familiar objects into fresh guacamole; and "Adam and Dog" (USA), the story about the dog of Eden, and what happened in those first days of Creation that made Man and Dog so inseparable. Official Web Site
