“Unrest,” “One of Us,” and Other Women-Directed Documentaries Advance in Oscar Race

Unrest

The Oscar race is heating up. The Academy has narrowed down the films in the running for Documentary Feature to 15, and four of them are directed or co-directed by women, amounting to about 27 percent of the pool.

The short list includes Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady’s “One of Us,” an intimate look into the lives of three individuals who chose to leave or were pushed out of their insular Hasidic community, and Jennifer Brea’s “Unrest,” which sees the filmmaker exploring her own medical mystery. “When I was 28, I was a PhD student at Harvard and engaged to the love of my life. Then I came down with a terrible fever,” Brea recounted to us. “Although doctors told me my symptoms were ‘all in my head,’ I grew progressively more ill, and within months I was unable even to sit in a wheelchair.”

Oscar Narrows the Documentary Feature Field

Chris here, with more Oscar bake off lists. Today we have the 15 films advancing in the Documentary Feature race, many of which we have covered here at The Film Experience in Glenn's column Doc Corner. The eventual lineup could include two recent Honorary Oscar winners: Frederick Wiseman (Ex Libris: New York Public Library) and Agnès Varda (Faces Places, with Jr), neither of who had ever been nominated in the category. Al Gore could be returning to the Oscars, as the follow-up to winning climate change doc An Inconvenient Truth has also advanced. Take a look at the rest of the list:

Exclusive Interview – An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power directors Bonni Cohen & Jon Shenk on the energy revolution, documentary making and more

Alex Moreland talks to the directors of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk

So, it’s been a decade since the first movie came out. Why was now the right time for a sequel?

Jon: Well, Al Gore and Participant Media, who made the first film, had been talking about a follow-up in the years after An Inconvenient Truth. And, I think, a number of things happened. One was that the story really has changed significantly in the last years, partly because of the cost down-curve of solar, wind, and other sustainable sources of energy has really become equal – if not lower – in many parts of the world to generate electricity that way. And so, that was a significant update to the story. When an “Inconvenient Truth” came out it was sort of a hopeful thing that solar and wind might someday help us solve the problem.

‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ Filmmakers on Modifying Their Film After Donald Trump’s Climate Policy Changes

‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ Filmmakers on Modifying Their Film After Donald Trump’s Climate Policy Changes
Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk’s “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” had its world premiere at Sundance 2017 — the evening before Donald Trump’s inauguration. Since then, they’ve had to update their film, a follow-up to Al Gore’s 2006 Oscar-winning documentary, with the changes the new administration has made in regard to climate change.

“In many ways it was an era ago,” Shenk said in a conversation with IndieWire Editor at Large Anne Thompson following a screening at the International Documentary Association’s annual screening series. “[When] we finished the film we didn’t know what he was going to do. We heard, of course, his campaign promises…leading up to his announcement in June to leave the Paris accords, it became more and more apparent…that we really owed it to the film to update those last few minutes.”

‘Grain’ Wins Grand Prix at Tokyo Festival

‘Grain’ Wins Grand Prix at Tokyo Festival
Turkish director Semih Kaplanoglu’s dystopian future drama “Grain” received the Grand Prix at the closing ceremony of the Tokyo International Film Festival.

The festival closed Friday with a screening of Al Gore documentary “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” with Gore present to introduce the film.

“Film festivals relieve filmmakers and audiences of commercial demands,” said Tommy Lee Jones, president of the jury, in his closing remarks. The films in the Tiff competition featured “no pistols, no car crashes, no explosions and no damsels in distress. Not that they’re always bad, but they’re not required. That does not relive filmmakers of responsibility for narrative coherence and visual beauty and making good use of the audience’s time.”

Silvia Luzi and Luca Bellino’s “Crater” took the second place special jury prize. Edmund Yeo won the best director prize for “Aqerat (We the Dead),” Teemu Nikki best screenplay for “Euthanizer” and Dong Yue, director of “The

Oscar Doc Submissions Are 35 Percent Women-Directed

Motherland

It’s time to meet the 2018 Oscar doc contenders. One hundred seventy features have been submitted for consideration in the category at the upcoming Academy Awards, and one of them will be taking home an Oscar and the title of Best Doc at the 90th installment of the ceremony. Of those 170 titles, 60 are directed or co-directed by women, amounting to about 35 percent of the total. Last year, 30 percent of the features in the race were helmed or co-helmed by women. Just one doc submitted by a woman earned a nod, Ava DuVernay’s “13th,” an exploration of the connection between slavery and mass-incarceration in the United States.

“Several of the films have not yet had their required Los Angeles and New York qualifying releases,” a press release announcing this year’s doc hopefuls specified. So at this point it’s not a sure bet that these films will be eligible to advance, since “submitted features must fulfill the theatrical release requirements and comply with all of the category’s other qualifying rules in order to” do so.

Docs in the running include Amanda Lipitz’s “Step,” an inspirational story of an all-girls dance team at a Baltimore high school, Nanfu Wang’s “I Am Another You,” a portrait of a drifter in Florida, and Ramona S. Diaz’s “Motherland,” a look inside the world’s busiest maternity hospital.

A shortlist of 15 films will be unveiled in December, and nominations will be announced January 23, 2018. The Oscars will take place March 4, 2018.
