“Buck” (Cedar Creek Productions)
“Hell and Back Again” (Roast Beef Productions Limited)
“If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front” (Marshall Curry Productions, LLC)

“Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory” (
“Pina” (Neue Road Movies GmbH)

“Sing Your Song” (S2BN Belafonte Productions, LLC)
“Undefeated” (Spitfire Pictures)
“Under Fire: Journalists in Combat” (JUF Pictures, Inc.)
“We Were Here” (Weissman Projects, LLC)

The only one I have seen on the list is ‘Project Nim‘, so that is currently my favorite. I would like to see Pina for sure. Really surprised to not see Senna, The Interrupters, Page One: Inside the New York Times, or Into the Abyss. ‘Senna‘ was one of my favorite documentaries of all time, nevermind just this year. Disappointed, but not surprised. The Academy always seems to leave off a personal favorite.
