The envelopes have been opened and the Academy Awards bestowed for another year. This year, the best documentary feature honor went to what many doc pundits considered to be the front runner, Louie Psihoyos’ The Cove (Lionsgate, Roadside Attractions). Music By Prudence, an iThemba production directed by Roger Ross Williams, claimed the best documentary short Oscar. Look for our video interview with Louie Psihoyos taped during his appearance at the Realscreen Summit last month, coming soon on realscreen.com.
