Description

Featuring the top award-winning documentaries from Sundance and Tribeca, these eight powerful shorts include “One Year Lease,” a cautionary tale about renting an apartment in New York City, told through the voicemail messages of the tenants’ cat-loving landlady; “A Hole in the Sky,” a stirring portrait of life for a young woman in rural Somalia; “The Silly Bastard Next to the Bed,” a stranger-than-fiction account of one of the funniest phone calls ever made from the Oval Office during the Kennedy administration (it would make an excellent script for an episode of “Veep”); and tailor-made for the summer of the World Cup final, “Maradona ’86,” which tells the fascinating story of a controversial soccer icon.

Shorts program includes:
A Hole in the Sky
I Think This is the Closest to How the Footage Looked
