Laura Poitras was nominated for an Oscar two years ago for her excellent film MY COUNTRY, MY COUNTRY. Sunday, she was back at the Oscars as an Academy member and viewer - and she sent along these photos:
Joe Bini, editor on the Oscar nominated ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD, as well as Cinema Eye nominated for ROMAN POLANSKI: WANTED AND DESIRED, with Sundance Istitute Documentary Film Program Director Cara Mertes on the red carpet.
Mertes with some of the team from THE BETRAYAL (NERAKHOON) - Co-producer Chiemi Karasawa, Director/Producer/Cinematographer Ellen Kuras and Producer Flora Fernandez-Marengo.
Lena and Werner Herzog, the latter nominated for ENCOUNTERS, on the red carpet.
Kuras and co-director/editor/subject Thavisouk Phrasavath brave the red carpet guantlet.
Poitras and Bini.
Thanks to Laura for her dispatch from the Kodak.
