Oscar Shorts - Animation

Friday, January 31, 2020

The 2020 Academy Award Nominees for Animated Short Films, presented as a single program. HAIR LOVE – USA, 7 min. DCERA (Daughter) – Czech Republic, 15 min. MEMORABLE – France, 12 min. SISTER – China/USA, 8 min. KITBULL – USA, 9 min. Plus a selection of additional animated shorts: HENRIETTA BULKOWSKI – USA, 16 min. THE BIRD AND THE WHALE – Ireland, 6 min. HORS PISTE – France, 5 min. MAESTRO – France, 2 min. The total run time of this program is 85 minutes. Suggested rating is PG-13. The themes tackled in this year’s Animated program are quite heavy – the death of a parent, Alzheimer’s, China’s one child policy, and more. The program overall is rather melancholy, and while there’s nothing especially objectionable within, most of these shorts will not appeal to children under 12, at all. The films are all very good, but adult audiences will appreciate them much more than kids.
