Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Feb 12th at 4:00 pm for Oscar Nominated Live Action Shorts at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Beth wearing a red quilted vest 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: Sing (Hungary), in which the choir director at Zsofis new school may not be the inspirational teacher everyone thinks she is, and it will take Zsofi and her new friend Liza to uncover the cruel truth; Silent Nights (Denmark), in which Inger, who volunteers at a homeless shelter and falls in love with illegal immigrant Kwame, is happy for a while until the day when Kwames mobile phone reveals everything about his life in Ghana; Timecode (Spain), in which Luna and Diego are parking lot security guardsDiego doing the night shift, and Luna working by day; Ennemis Interieurs (France), in which an interview at a local police station turns into an inquisition during which a French-Algerian born man sees himself accused of protecting the identities of possible terrorists; and La Femme et le TGV (Switzerland) starring Cesar Award nominee Jane Birkin as Elise Lafontaine, who has been waving at the express train that passes her house every morning and evening for many years. She finds a letter from the train conductor in her garden and her lonely life is turned upside down.
