PGA Announces Documentary Film Nominees
The guild's awards winner will be announced Jan. 26.
The Producers Guild of America has nominated five films, ranging from Aaron Yeger's A People Uncounted to Malik Bendjelloul's Searching for Sugar Man, for its Documentary Motion Picture Award. The nominees also include Dror Moreh's The Gatekeepers, Jon Shenk's The Island President and Marius A. Markevicius' The Other Dream Team.
The nominees tackle a range of social issues and feature a number of striking personalities.
A People Uncounted looks at the history of the Roma people of Central and Eastern Europe, also known as gypsies, who faced annihilation under the Nazis, while The Other Dream Team, which is being distributed by Lionsgate and Film Arcade, tells the story of the 1992 Lithuanian basketball team.
Samuel Goldwyn Films' The Island President profiles Mohamed Nasheed, President of the Maldives, and his efforts to save his island nation from the surrounding seas.
Sony Pictures Classics has two films among the nominees: The Gatekeepers, which offers interviews with six former heads of Israel's domestic secret service agency, the Shin Bet, and Searching for Sugar Man, which tells the story of the '70s singer/songwriter Rodriguez, who became a huge star in South Africa even while remaining an unknown in his hometown of Detroit.
The nominations in all the other categories at the PGA Awards will be announced Jan. 2. The awards themselves, at which special honors will be presented to Bob and Harvey Weinstein, J.J. Abrams, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner and Russell Simmons, will be held Jan. 26 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
