In Person Guests!
2016 Oscar-Nominated Live Action Shorts
The American Cinematheque presents all of the 2016 Oscar-nominated live-action shorts! Distributed by Shorts International and Magnolia Pictures.

Ave Maria” (Palestine/France/Germany, 15 min. Dir. Basil Khalil) Five nuns living in the West Bank find their routine disrupted when the car of a family of Israeli settlers breaks down outside the convent. Unable to use the telephone due to Sabbath restrictions, the family needs help from the nuns, but the sisters' vow of silence requires them to work with their visitors to find an unorthodox solution.

Shok” (Kosovo/U.K., 21 min. Dir. Jamie Donoughue) In Kosovo in 1998, two young boys are best friends living normal lives, but as war engulfs their country, their daily existence becomes filled with violence and fear. Soon, the choices they make threaten not only their friendship, but their families and their lives.

Everything Will Be Okay (Alles Wird Gut)” (Germany/Austria, 30 min. Dir. Patrick Vollrath) Michael, a divorced father devoted to his eight-year-old daughter, Lea, picks her up for their usual weekend together. At first it feels like a normal visit, but Lea soon realizes that something is different, and so begins a fateful journey.

Stutterer” (U.K./Ireland, 12 min. Dir. Benjamin Cleary) For a lonely typographer, an online relationship has provided a much-needed connection without revealing the speech impediment that has kept him isolated. Now, however, he is faced with the proposition of meeting his online paramour in the flesh, and thereby revealing the truth about himself.

Day One” (U.S., 25 min. Dir. Henry Hughes) On the heels of a painful divorce, an Afghan-American woman joins the U.S. military as an interpreter and is sent to Afghanistan. On her first mission, she accompanies troops pursuing a bomb-maker, and must bridge the gender and culture gap to help the man's pregnant wife when she goes into labor.

Introduction by "Stutterer" filmmakers Benjamin Cleary, Serena Armitage and Shan Ogilvie.
