Yesterday, Colette Martin-Catherine celebrated her 93rd birthday. And yesterday, her story won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject for Colette.
Colette is a powerful 24-minute documentary about a teenager who was part of the French Resistance when Nazi Germany occupied France during World War II. During the short, we learn that Colette’s older brother, Jean-Pierre, was killed by the Nazis during World War II. He was only 17 years old. The documentary focuses on Ms. Martin-Catherine, now in her 90s, and her first visit to Germany to visit the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp where her brother was murdered.
CYInterview would like to congratulate director Anthony Giacchino and producer Alice Doyard on their win, last night at the 93rd Academy Awards, for Collette. Earlier this month on CYInterview, they joined us to discuss their moving film. You can see that CYInterview by clicking here.
We also want to congratulate Lucie Fouble, the young historian, who stars alongside Colette Martin-Catherine in the film, as well as the rest of the crew who worked on this project. Kudos to all of you.
Colette teaches us that the struggle for good to triumph over evil can come at a high cost. However, those brave souls who stand up to evil are forever owed a debt of gratitude by humanity. May they be remembered and honored for eternity.
We believe everybody should watch Colette for its powerful and inspiring messages. You can see this moving documentary short and share it with your family and friends by clicking here.
