SDFF Alum Streams Oscar-Winning Short + Important Historical Work for Free
- 2 years ago
Marshall Curry, whose film Racing Dreams was an SDFF 2010 Official Selection, won the 2020 Academy Award for Best Live Action Short with his remarkable and unexpectedly moving short, The Neighbors Window. Curry’s acceptance speech (above) is also incredible. The film was making the rounds nationally, along with all of the other short films nominated for Oscars until the Coronavirus made that impossible. So, he has made it available for free, right here.
And, while it diverges completely from the intimacy of The Neighbors Window, his chilling 2018 piece A Night At The Garden, comprised entirely of footage from a 1939 American Nazi Party rally at Madison Square Garden, is also well worth watching, and is available to stream, here. It is perhaps more timely today than it was when it was released.
