The Five Films Nominated For Best Short Documentary at the Oscars

When I was in Albuquerque, I had a chance to see the five documentary shorts up for the Oscar. All superb!

Three documentaries were about the Syrian Civil War. "Watani: My Homeland" is chilling at times, but ends fairly well. "White Helmets" is heroic. My favorite, though, was "4.1 Miles". It has everything you could ever ask of a movie: people drowning on camera in one of the most beautiful seascapes on Earth. Can't go wrong, filmwise!

"White Helmets" won, which was my second choice. Not bad!
