MoMA; Oscar’s Docs: Nature and Humanity

What:This year Oscar’s Docs, the annual collaboration between the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Department of Film, features documentary films from the 1950s through the 1970s that explore the natural world in all its complexity. Stunning precursors to today’s “green” films, these Oscar-nominated shorts and feature-length nonfiction films prioritize a sense of adventure and urgency in their structure and advocacy. From world-renowned greats such as Jerome Hill and Jacques-Yves Cousteau to father-and-son amateur filmmakers, and across locations as far-flung as Mount Everest and the Serengeti, this is the kind of cinema that first made us love the great outdoors and all its treasures.

When/Where: Screenings take place February 8th through 14th, and all of them are at the MoMA’s Theater 1. Visit their website for ticket and screening information.
