    which this year’s Documentary Short Subject nominee is the best in your opinion and should win the Oscar?

    my personal thought on them are here: https://www.goldderby.com/forum/movies/oscar-2021-predictions-animated-documentary-and-live-action-shorts/page/3/#post-1204145511

    I’m really interested in finding out what we think is actually best after seeing all the shorts…

    A Concerto is a Conversation.

    Short, to the point and very heartfelt and impactful.

    Collette – really moving and told from such a heartbreaking yet honest point of view.

    I went to a screening of all of them and actually loved all of them. Love Song for Latasha will win. I think maybe for me the one that got me the most was Don’t Split about Hong Kong fighting for its freedom. And the way it’s told is very powerful.

    I agree about Do Not Split. I love when documentaries show us important matters happening in the present world, we have no idea about… but I felt this doc had no real ending or maybe I just felt dissapointed that the “heroes” of this doc didn’t succeed in the end…

    Haven’t seen Hunger Ward, anyone know where I can find it?

    I’ve seen it here: https://pluto.tv/on-demand/movies/hunger-ward

    I voted for Hunger Ward, but I don’t see any frontrunner here. Colette is my least favorite.

    Haven’t seen Hunger Ward yet but tbh so far they are all kind of disappointing. Most of them are specular in how unspectacularly made they are. Like, is there any excellency in filmmaking to be found in A Concerto Is a Conversation? I’d probably vote for Do Not Split because the way it was shot actually contributed to the experience and didn’t take away from it, as was the case with Colette.

    Do Not Split perhaps taught me more about the Hong Kong protests in ways that a textbook or series of news articles never could. It felt like the least manipulated documentation, making it also the most immersive.

    This is not an outstanding group.

    1. Do Not Split

    2. A Concerto Is a Conversation
    3. A Love Song for Latasha
    4. Hunger Ward

    5. Colette

    I voted for it too as this doc has the most important story to tell, but also its story is quite painful to watch. The female doctors are the nowadays heroes. This doc gives some hope [SPOIL]showing one of the girls leaving the hospital[/SPOIL] but the end titles pointing out the United States’ part in the misery of Yemen people can be problematic with American Academy voters, so they will probably choose the doc that shows that other country which is US’ economic competitor has a problem with respecting democracy ;P

    Do Not Split is my 2nd favorite, but – I already mentioned it before – due to the coronavirus, I do not think the short has a proper ending apart from what we learn during end titles about the legislative act…

    A Love Song for Natasha was the most polished and provided a beautiful film.

    Also was pleasantly surprised by Do Not Split. Those footages were great and were put together in an interesting tone.

    The others are very meh and I seriously hope A Concerto is a Conversation doesn’t win. Who thought that would be good directing?
