The nominees for best documentary short are all Oscar newbies with the exception of Steven Okazaki. Okazaki won in 1990 and is nominated this year for the Mushroom Club. The Mushroom Club examines the effects of Hiroshima sixty years later. The two other strong contenders for the win are God Sleeps in Rwanda, a film about women in Rwanda after the genocide, and the Death of Kevin Carter, a short about a photojournalist who took a photo of a starving woman in the Sudan and how doing so changed his life. I am going to go out on a limb and predict that God Sleeps in Rwanda will take home the Oscar. The short takes a depressing subject, the Rwandan Genocide, and shows us a glimmer of hope. The documentary short has traditionally gone to uplifting films, and God Sleeps in Rwanda fits the bill.
