Oscar Shorts | Live Action
106min

A showcase of the five live-action short films nominated for this year's Academy Awards.

THE CONFESSION  Quiet and sincere 9-year-old Sam is worried about making his first confession. His conscience is clear, therefore he cannot hope for any relief from the experience. He and his friend Jacob decide to remedy that situation, but their initially innocent prank turns unexpectedly tragic.  (UK, 26 min., Director: Tanel Toom)

WISH 143  A fifteen-year-old boy with only months to live is granted one wish from the Dreamscape Charity. But David doesn't want to go to Disneyland or meet Gary Neville; what he really wants is an hour alone with a naked woman.  (UK, 24 min., Director: Ian Barnes)

NA WEWE  1994: There is civil war in Burundi, a small country of Central Africa directly bordering Rwanda. A near genocidal confrontation opposes rebels mainly composed of ethnic Hutus and a national army with a majority of Tutsis. This short film relates a sadly frequent episode of this fratricidal conflict: the attack by rebels of a minivan carrying ordinary citizens. (Belgium, 19 min., Director: Ivan Goldschmidt)

THE CRUSH  Ardal Travis is in love. There's just one problem. He's an 8 year old schoolboy and the object of his affection is his Second Class teacher, Miss Purdy. But when her boyfriend arrives on the scene Ardal is heartbroken. His reaction, though, is a little unexpected. He challenges Miss Purdy's boyfriend to a duel. To the death.  (Ireland, 15 min., Director: Michael Creagh)

GOD OF LOVE  Lounge-singing darts champion Raymond Goodfellow finds his prayers are answered  literally  when he receives a mysterious package of passion-inducing darts. The catch is that the one woman he loves  Kelly, a drummer in his band  is already in love with Ray's best friend Fozzie, the guitarist in the band. But when Ray uses the darts in a loony scheme to resolve this strange romantic triangle, he learns a surprising lesson about unrequited love and discovers his own place in the universe. Romance is in the air in this bohemian charmer.  (USA, 18 min., Director: Luke Matheny)
