Congratulations to all DX artists and filmmakers who are shortlisted for this year’s Academy Awards. Nominated feature documentaries include Attica, Flee, The First Wave, In the Same Breath, The Rescue, and Writing with Fire. Short docs include Águilas, Day of Rage, and The Facility. Announcement of the official nominees arrives tomorrow.
In anticipation, we interviewed co-director Malachy Browne to learn more about the behind-the-scenes making of Day of Rage, and the surprising recognition from the Academy of a short film that sprang from a newsroom investigation. The 40-minute film is a meticulous reconstruction of the January 6, 2021 mob attack on the US Capitol, using cellphone pictures and videos, police radio recordings, court records, and other documents, by the Visual Investigations team at The New York Times. Check out the interview in this video.
