On Wednesday, October 30th, I attended a screening of Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am at the gorgeous Roxy Cinema, hosted by Magnolia Pictures. It premiered this year at the Sundance Film Festival and was an Official Selection at the AFI Docs Festival and the San Francisco International Film Festival. The film is currently campaigning for “Best Documentary Feature” at the Oscars.
Oscar week is officially in full force, with historic nominations, a unique set of nominees, and a new set of stories to tell. It is definitely a Hollywood event worth celebrating. Honoring this year’s Oscar Short Film nominees, The Academy highlighted the work of multiple directors up for the award.
The Knockturnal caught up with Oscar nominees Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman, the producing duo behind this year’s much buzzed about Best Documentary Feature nominee, Winter On Fire: Ukraine’s Fight For Freedom, which chronicles the events that unfolded in Ukraine during 2013/2014 when student demonstrations led to a violent revolution calling for the end of a corrupt national regime.
