The Oscar Nominated Shorts (Live Action) at E St. Cinema - Meet at 4:30



Don't miss this rare opportunity to see all five Academy Award nominees in the category of Best Live Action Short! This year's program will be hosted by last year's winner: Luke Matheny, writer/director of "God of Love."

Program includes:

  • "Asad" (South Africa/USA), a coming-of-age fable of a Somali boy who is faced with either falling into a life of piracy, or choosing the path of an honest fisherman.
  • "Buzkashi Boys" (Afghanistan/USA), the story of two best friends—a street urchin and a blacksmith's son—who struggle to realize their dreams as they make their way to manhood in war-torn Kabul.
  • "Curfew" (USA), in which Richie, at the lowest point of his life, gets a call from his estranged sister, asking him to look after his nine-year old niece Sophia for the evening.
  • "Death of a Shadow" (Belgium/France), in which a strange collector imprisons the shadow of Nathan (Matthias Schoenaerts, Rust and Bone), a soldier who died during World War I, and gives him a second life against 10,000 captured shadows.
  • "Henry" (Canada), in which Henry, a great concert pianist, has his life thrown in turmoil the day the love of this life, Maria, disappears mysteriously.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
