Three political documentaries and a nonfiction yarn about art forgery represent female documentarians’ contributions to the 2015 Oscar doc shortlist.
Four women-directed works will be eligible for the official list of nonfiction nominees:
“Art and Craft,” Purple Parrot Films – Co-directed by Jennifer Grausman
“Citizen Koch,” Elsewhere Films – Co-directed by Tia Lessin
“CitizenFour,” Praxis Films – Laura Poitras
“Last Days in Vietnam,” Moxie Firecracker Films – Rory Kennedy
We’re a bit surprised that neither Stephanie Soechtig’s sugar exposé Fed Up or Katy Chevigny and Ross Kauffman’s E-Team made the cut, but we’re happy for these women directors who did.
