It’s funny, a bit sad and ultimately heartwarming, and it all happens in about 10 minutes. The Pixar film Bao, in which a sad Chinese mother is captivated by a dumpling that suddenly comes to life, is just one of five animated short films nominated for an Oscar this year.
The Sebastiani Theatre presents all the short films each of the three Academy Award categories. The program of five documentary nominees screens February 15 at 7:15 p.m. and repeats on Feb. 19 at 7:15. The Live Action group shows Feb. 16 (and again Feb. 21 at 2:45 p.m.). Animated rolls three time: Feb. 17 at 3 p.m.; Feb. 18 at 3 p.m.; and Feb. 20 at 4:30 p.m.
