2023 Oscar-Nominated Documentary Shorts (Through Feb. 25)

Speed Art Museum  

$12 ($8 Speed Members)  |  6 p.m. 

Before the Academy Award winners are announced, check out a screening of the nominations in a category that often flies under the radar: Documentary Shorts. Enjoy consecutive screenings of “The Elephant Whisperers,” “Haulout,” “How Do You Measure a Year?,” “The Martha Mitchell Effect” and “Stranger at the Gate.” The latter documents a U.S. Marine who plotted a terrorist attack on an American mosque in a small town, “but his plan takes an unexpected turn when he comes face-to-face with the people he sets out to kill,” according to the movie listing. Over the weekend, the Speed is also offering showings of films in all three Oscar categories for shorts. Click here to see the full schedule.
