If You Love Movies: Oscar Nominated Films Shown In Sioux Falls

2014 Oscar Nominations
AMPAS

Cinema Falls provided a wonderful “Oscar” movie experience Saturday and Sunday. The nominated Shorts, in Animation and Live Action were viewed Saturday night at the Western Mall Theatre, to a full house. A post party allowed for great discussions.   Sunday at the Icon Lounge the Documentary selections were viewed.

It was an amazing experience. The emotional impact ran the gamut from light hearted “Room on the Broom” to the dark “Feral,” in the Animated Category. The Live Action nominees were all powerful films. “Just Before Losing Everything”, “Helium”, and “The Voorman Problem” were my favorites.

On Sunday at the Icon Lounge, we were able to experience the Documentaries.”Karama Has No Walls” was extremely powerful. The uprising in Yemen during the Arab Spring with video shot by young amateurs, was the subject.

“Facing Fear”, “The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life”, and “Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall”, all dealt with human emotions, anger, forgiveness, the power of music, and death.

The “Cavedigger” was lighter, but equally interesting because of the unique work Ra Paulette does and his interactions with the underground world and humans paying him to create.

Shorts, by definition are short. The longest film was 40 minutes. The shortest 6. I saw 15 Oscar Nominated Movies in about 4 hours.  Each had a story and message.   All were thought provoking.

The Cinema Falls extravaganza was a great way to invest my time. It didn’t interfere with the Super Bowl, and frankly it was more interesting than the game.
