Shorts - Documentaries 2
Milliken at the Dennos Museum Sun, Aug 5, 2012 9:00 AM
From the philosophical musings of the workers who wash windows on skyscrapers to the secret lives of housecats, these award-winning shorts have garnered acclaim at some of the world’s top festivals. “Aaron Burr, Part 2” gives one of history’s villains a chance to tell his side of the story, while in “I’m Never Afraid!” an eight-year-old motorcross champion laughs in the face of danger, and in “Grandmothers,” the stories of Argentinian women whose grandchildren were “disappeared” is given a lyrical animated treatment.
