UNDER OUR SKIN makes the Oscar ``short list''

http://tinyurl.com/yaltfdj

Posted: 18 Nov 2009 05:16 PM PST

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences today announced that UNDER OUR SKIN was selected as one of the 15 finalists competing for ``Best Documentary Feature'' in the 82nd Academy Awards.

Unfolding like a real-life thriller, UNDER OUR SKIN exposes the hidden epidemic of Lyme disease and reveals how our corrupt medical system is failing to address one of the most serious illnesses of our time.

Open Eye Pictures is thrilled that the Academy has honored the courageous Lyme patients and physicians whose stories are told in this film.

And we hope that this nomination will help spread awareness about this devastating disease and serve as a catalyst for fixing our country's broken health care system.

The Documentary Branch Screening Academy Committee viewed all eighty-nine qualifying documentaries during the preliminary round of voting.

Academy members will now select five nominees from among the 15 titles on the shortlist, and Academy Awards nominations will be announced on Tuesday, February 2, 2010.
