OSCAR SEASON AT THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE 2020
2020 OSCAR-NOMINATED ANIMATED SHORTS
Distributed by Shorts International and Magnolia Pictures.

The American Cinematheque presents all of the 2019 Oscar-nominated animated short films:

“Hair Love” (USA, 7 min. Dir. Matthew A. Cherry) A heartfelt animated short that centers around the relationship between an African-American father, his daughter Zuri and the most daunting task a father could ever come across - doing his daughter’s hair for the first time.

“Dcera (Daughter)” (Czech Republic, 15 min. Dir. Daria Kashcheeva) In a hospital room a daughter recalls a childhood moment when as a little girl she tried to share her experience with an injured bird with her father.

“Memorable” (France, 12 min. Dir. Bruno Collet) Recently, Louis, a painter, is experiencing strange events. His world seems to be mutating. Slowly, furniture, objects and
people lose their realism. They are destructuring, sometimes disintegrating…

“Sister” (China/USA, 8 min. Dir. Siqi Song) A man thinks back to his childhood memories of growing up with an annoying little sister in China in the 1990s. What would his life have been like if things had gone differently?

“Kitbull” (USA, 9 min. Dir. Rosana Sullivan) This animated short reveals an unlikely connection that sparks between two creatures: a fiercely independent stray kitten and a pit bull. Together, they experience friendship for the first time.

Program also features additional animated shorts from 2019: "Henrietta Bulkowski" (USA, 16 min.), "The Bird and the Whale" (Ireland, 6 min.), "Hors Piste" (France, 5 min.) and "Maestro" (France, 2 min.).
