Dear, along with a team of internationally recognized scientific and medical experts in their fields. Each expert has come to the same, independent conclusion. The documentary includes references to key communication between the LAPD and agencies responsible for the original trial and lead investigator Dear, making viewers wonder: why was the overlooked suspect we have identified not more vigorously pursued?

**OSCAR TOP 8 LIST FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT*** INOCENTE

Directed by Sean Fine & Andrea Nix Fine - - Expected to attend INOCENTE is a personal and vibrant coming-of-age story about a young artist’s determination never to surrender to the bleakness of her surroundings. At 15, Inocente refuses to let her dream of becoming an artist be caged by being an undocumented immigrant forced to live homeless for the last nine years. Color is her personal revolution and its sweep on her canvases creates a world that looks nothing like her own dark past. INOCENTE is both a timeless story about the transformative power of art and a timely snapshot of the new face of homelessness in America: children. The challenges are staggering, but the hope in her story proves that her circumstance do not define her, her dreams do. 40 min, USA - DOCUMENTARY SHORT

**OSCAR TOP 8 LIST FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT*** KINGS POINT (Orange County Premiere)

Directed by Sari Gilman In the 1970s and 80s, hundreds of thousands of senior citizens migrated from New York City to Kings Point, a typical retirement community in Florida. Lured by blue skies, sunshine, palm trees, and the promise of a rich social life, they bought their way to paradise with a $1,500 down payment. Now, as an aging community faces its own mortality, paradise has begun to exact a higher price. Through the experiences of five longtime residents, ‘Kings Point’ captures both the allure and the darker complexities of living in a world where “nobody gets too close.” Poignant, funny and dark, ‘Kings Point’ is an empathetic portrait of the last act of the American dream. 30 min, USA - DOCUMENTARY SHORT

**AWARD-WINNING DOCUMENTARY SHORT** THE LONG WALK BACK (Southern California Premiere) Directed by Jonas Klittmark

Most employees that have worked for a few years on the railroads have experienced at least one critical incident. For an engineer that operates the train, that often means watching another human being in their last seconds of life - a front view ticket to something terrible but unstoppable. For a conductor, it means walking back after the incident to see what was actually hit. This is not your average nine-to-five job. 14 min, USA - DOCUMENTARY SHORT

Directed by Kadija Leclere Alsemberg, December 1975, 8-year-old Sarah lives in a Catholic foyer. One day, her biological father, whom she has never met before, comes to take her for a weekend in Paris. But it is in Morocco that Sarah wakes up, in a little town in the middle of the Atlas Mountains. Very soon, her father leaves, abandoning her without any explanation. Sarah then slips into the life of a little Moroccan girl where the only schooling she is offered is ‘knitting.’ Nine years later, we find Sarah, now a 17-year-old teenager like all the others... or almost. The year is 1984, in the middle of a hunger revolt (The Revolt of ‘Aw- bach’). Sarah’s father has never sent the money he promised to send, and for the family where she is staying, each mouth to feed accounts for more and more. Sarah now has to find a way to earn her room and board. And then, there’s Nari, that beautiful politically engaged student. But then, there is also her wish of leaving, to go back to Belgium of her childhood, the school, the books and a life that Sarah imagines free. 92 min, Belgium/Morocco – FEATURE
