Oscar Shorts coming to San Antonio's Santikos Bijou



Lewis Howlett’s superb Catholic guilt-ridden performance (especially the movie’s devastating last close-up) in The Confession, one of the nominees for Best Live Action Short at this year’s Academy Awards, is worth the ticket price alone. But there’s a lot more to watch. These 15 films, divided in the Live Action, Animated Action, and Documentary categories, have something for everyone. You have a smart, gorgeous-looking black and white romantic comedy in God of Love; Na Wewe (pictured), a chilling yet funny exploration into the absurdity of Hutu/Tutsi conflict in Burundi’s civil war; an animated marvel in Madagascar, carnet de voyage; and balls the size of a Buick in Ashraf Al-Khaled, who speaks out against terrorism in Killing in the Name. A feast for the eyes and the brain.
