13 October 2011 4:39 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Lucy Walker's The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom Lucy Walker's The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom, Rebecca Cammisa's God Is the Bigger Elvis, and Jon Alpert and Matthew O'Neill's In Tahrir Square: 18 Days of Egypt's Unfinished Revolution are among eight films still in the running for the 2012 Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject. Five of those shorts will earn Oscar nominations. The semi-finalists were selected by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Documentary Branch. Thirty-five entries were originally submitted. Unfortunately, there isn't much information out there about several of the current contenders, but at least some of the shorts — inevitably — revolve around recent international events, e.g., In Tahrir Square: 18 Days of Egypt's Unfinished Revolution; The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom, about how some in Japan use art and the national flower to recover from the devastating earthquake and tsunami earlier this year »
