Over the next few weeks, the Crandell Theatre is streaming the Short Films nominated for the 2021 Oscar category, Short Films: Live Action.

Feeling Through – Doug Roland and Susan Ruzenski (USA)
Two Distant Strangers – Travon Free and Martin Desmond Roe (USA)
White Eye – Tomer Shushan and Shira Hochman (Israel)

“What Neil Gaiman has written about short stories is certainly true of short narrative films, and here are five live-action films that are ‘tiny windows into other worlds, and other minds, and other dreams. They’re journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner.’ These short films, three from the US, one from Israel, and one from Palestine, are each nominated for an Oscar and each will transport its viewers efficiently, dramatically, and powerfully into the lives of strangers, neighbors, and even family.” – Laurence Kardish, FilmColumbia co-artistic director and former senior film curator at MoMA
