The Academy documentary shortlist for the 91st Academy Awards in 2020 was announced this morning and 'Maiden' was one of 15 documentaries on the list. I am absolutely thrilled. Over the course of the last few months travelling with 'Lost and Found' and promoting 'Maiden', I have met so many of the documentary makers and feel such love for powerful docs such as 'For Sama' and 'The Cave'. I am so lucky to be part of this great documentary family.
A couple of hours before the announcement Tracy, Alex and I had such a fun screening and Q&A. Audiences always give Tracy and the film so much love. It feels great to witness that warmth..
