Oscar Nominated Docs

It's awards season again! Over the years, we have been proud to offer a variety of Oscar nominated and winning movies to our members, particularly documentaries and foreign films. This year is no exception with Netflix currently streaming two of the compelling documentaries in the race to take home this year’s Best Documentary Feature Oscar. “Hell and Back Again”, a riveting documentary which captures one Marine’s battle to transition back to civilian life after serving in Afghanistan. “If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front” explores the radical environmental group and their tactics of “economic sabotage” in the name of the planet. - Lisa Lisa Nishimura is VP of Independent Studio Content Acquisition
