MFA Thesis Film Shortlisted for Academy Award
Dec 29, 2014
Yatao Li's MFA thesis film, Carry On, is one of only ten films on the official Academy Award shortlist for Live Action Short Film. While SOFA films have been recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences before in the student category, this is the first time one has reached the final stages of the full Academy Awards. Nominations will be announced on January 15, 2015.
Carry On, produced in China in Chinese and Japanese, tells the story of a Chinese father's attempt to save his young daughter from the brutal Japanese retreat at the end of World War II.
