by Jessica Fuentes February 13, 2024

Throughout February and early March, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston will be screening various 2024 Oscar-nominated short films. Each weekend from now through March 10, the museum will present blocks of animated, documentary, and live-action shorts, in programs ranging from 80 to 141 minutes. The individual films range from seven to 39 minutes each.

In the animation category, beautifully rendered films tell poignant narratives about the Holocaust, death, and child abuse. The documentaries cover various topics, including a repair shop that mends students’ instruments, a barber who is working towards economic justice, and the effects of book bans taking place in school districts across the U.S. And the live action category presents stories involving a woman facing an unwanted pregnancy in the U.S. following the overturning of Roe V. Wade, a witness to an attack on the capital who is trying to recover from the violence he saw, and a Roald Dahl story about a rich man who sets out to learn to see without using his eyes.
