The Oscar Nominated Short Films 2012: Live Action

February 15, 2012 @ 10:00 pm - 12:00 am


Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see all five Academy Award nominees in the category of Best Live Action Short! Program includes: “Pentecost” (Ireland), in which Damian, forced to serve as an altar boy at an important mass in his local parish, must either conform to the status quo or give up his passion in life, football; “Raju” (Germany/India), a dramatic tale about a German couple in Kolkata who adopt an Indian orphan, but their child suddenly disappears; “The Shore” (Northern Ireland), the uplifting story of two boyhood best friends—Joe (Ciarán Hinds) and Paddy (Conleth Hill)—divided for 25 years by the tumult of “The Troubles”; “Time Freak” (USA), in which a neurotic inventor creates a time machine, only to get caught up traveling around yesterday; and “Tuba Atlantic” (Norway), in which seventy-year-old Oskar is told that he has only six days left to live, and wants to put things right with his brother who lives in New Jersey.
