134 Documentary Features To Vie for Oscar

31 October 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced Friday that 134 films have been submitted for the documentary feature category for the 87th Academy Awards.

A shortlist of 15 films will be announced in December.

Several of the 134 films have not yet had their required Los Angeles and New York qualifying releases. The Acad this year has stricter rules in this matter (Variety, June 27). Every year, AMPAS tweaks its rules and now requirements state that a docu must screen “a minimum of four times daily during their qualifying theatrical releases in both New York and Los Angeles. The screenings must begin between noon and 10 p.m., and at least one screening daily must begin between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.”

This clamps down on documakers whose films screened once a day at a non-prime hour (like 11 a.m.) so they would technically qualify, though those films often remained below the radar to voters — and to the public. »

Afs Doc Nights Preview: Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq

4 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Perhaps, as I was, you are unfamiliar with the name Tanaquil Le Clercq. This skilled dancer, a principal with the New York City Ballet struck with polio at the age of 27, is the focus of Afternoon of a Faun. The documentary about the ballerina's life comes from Nancy Buirski (The Loving Story), and is the Austin Film Society Doc Nights selection for June.

Tanaquil, known to her friends as "Tanny," started dancing at a young age and impressed choreographers such as George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins.  A friend says, "Her body created inspiration for choreographers." She would form strong relationships with those two -- going on to marry Balanchine in 1952 and having a decades-long intense friendship with Robbins. Correspondence between Tanny and Robbins is read during Afternoon of a Faun, showing her dark humor and glimpses of her character, as well as the deep affection felt between them.

Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil le Clercq Movie Review

16 April 2014 2:04 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil le Clercq Director: Nancy Buirski A documentary on one of the more enchanting and tragic figures of the world of ballet, “Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil le Clercq” affirms the talent of its subject, but frustratingly fails to establish enough of a cleanly delineated backdrop or emotional throughline to connect to a general audience. The frustrating result is a hopelessly insular work. Directed by Nancy Buirski, “Afternoon of a Faun” centers around Tanaquil le Clercq, or “Tanny,” the only daughter of a French intellectual and his somewhat overbearing American wife. At 12 years of age, she won a scholarship to the American School of Ballet,  [ Read More ]
