Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jan 31st at 4:40pm for Oscar Nominated Live Shorts at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Eric wearing blue jeans and a gray shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see all five Academy Award nominees in the category of Best Live Action Short! Program includes:
Ave Maria (Palestine/France/Germany), in which the silent routine of five Palestinian nuns living in the West Bank wilderness is disturbed when an Israeli settler family breaks down right outside the convent just as the Sabbath comes into effect;
Day One (USA), depicting a new translators first day accompanying a U.S. Army unit as it searches for a local terrorist;
Everything Will Be Okay (Alles Wird Gut) (Germany/Austria), about a divorced father who picks up his eight-year-old daughter Lea, as he does every second weekend, but she cant help feeling that something isn’t right;
Shok (Friend) (Kosovo/UK), in which the friendship of two boys is tested to its limit as they battle for survival during the Kosovo war; and
Stutterer (UK/Ireland), the story of Greenwood, whose online girlfriend Ellie travels to London on the eve of their six-month anniversary to surprise him. These shows usually get pretty full – pre-purchase your ticket for the 4:40pm showing at the link below and don’t be late!
