2011 Oscar Nominated Shorts @ ICA

2/21/2011 10:01:00 PM
I hope everyone enjoyed their 3 day weekend (that is if you got one).  I have been laid up with a cold, unfortunately.  I've been sucking down zinc lozenges like there's no tomorrow, so hopefully my symptoms don't get worse and I start recovering soon.

That being said, I've been watching lots of tv while recovering, and once I'm well enough to not be contagious, I'm thinking about checking the Oscar shorts out at the ICA. 

Back by popular demand, the Institute of Contemporary Art presents 2011 Academy Award-nominated short films in two separate programs: Animated Shorts and Live Action Shorts.
