Oscar Shorts

After five successful weeks of screenings in June, which took audiences across 50 years of film — from 1925’s The Freshman to 1975’s Picnic at Hanging Rock — Texas Public Radio’s Cinema Tuesdays starts July with a presentation of 15 short films nominated for Academy Awards in February in their respected Animated, Documentary and Live-Action categories. The lineup includes the three winning shorts from each group: Feast (animated), Disney’s tale of a Boston terrier puppy who develops a bond with his owner through an insatiable taste for the food they share; Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press One (doc) about the staff working at the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs suicide hotline; and what could be considered a companion piece to Crisis, The Phone Call (live-action), about a suicide counselor (Sally Hawkins) attempting to dissuade a depressed stranger (Jim Broadbent) over the phone from killing himself. Other favorites include the Polish doc Our Curse, about a family’s emotional struggle with their newborn’s rare disease, as well as French-Israeli live-action drama Aya, about a woman who picks up a stranger from the airport pretending to be his driver.
