Basilicata Filmmaker in the Running for an Oscar
It's just been announced that Donato Sansone's Journal anime has made the short list as a candidate for Best Short Film at the 2017 Academy Awards.
The film is an artistic improvisation made between September 15 and November 15, 2015, inspired by the international news published in the newspaper Libération and the November 13th series of bombings that took place last year in Paris. The film explores the concept of freedom of expression as a tribute to Charlie Hebdo and its fallen journalists.
Journal anime will be available online in December. Check back here for updates.
