"Days of Waiting" screening
Oscar winning documentary by Steven Okazaki
Monday, October 6, 2008 7:30 pm
$5 for the general public

Two 1990 Oscar-winning documentaries, Steven Okazaki’s short Days of Waiting and Barbara Kopple’s feature American Dream , will be screened as part of "Oscar’s Docs, Part Four: Academy Award-winning Documentaries 1988-1997" on Monday, October 6, at 7:30 p.m. at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences‘ Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood.

Days of Waiting tells the story of Estelle Ishigo, one of the few Caucasians interned along with more than 100,000 Japanese and their descendants during World War II. The film depicts the deprivations of camp life through Ishigo’s sketches and watercolors.

"Oscar’s Docs" is a comprehensive screening series of every short subject and feature to win the Academy Award for documentary filmmaking since the category was established in 1941. The retrospective will feature the best available prints — often newly struck or restored editions from the documentary collection of the Academy Film Archive.

Tickets to each "Oscar’s Docs" screenings are $5 for the general public and $3 for Academy members and students with a valid ID. A limited number of series passes for all ten evenings are available for $30 for the general public and $25 for Academy members and students with a valid ID. A $5 discount will be given to previous passholders.

Tickets are available for purchase by mail, at the Academy box office, or online at www.oscars.org by mail, or in person at the Academy box office at 8949 Wilshire Boulevard during regular business hours. Doors open one hour prior to the start of the event. All seating is unreserved.

The Linwood Dunn Theater is located at 1313 Vine Street in Hollywood. Free parking is available through the entrance on Homewood Avenue (one block north of Fountain Avenue).
