2016 Academy Award ® nomination – Best Documentary Short Subject

When Bill Babbitt realizes his brother Manny has committed a crime he agonizes over his decision — should he call the police? Last Day of Freedom is a richly animated personal narrative that tells the story of Bill’s decision to stand by his brother, a Veteran returning from war, as he faces criminal charges, racism, and ultimately the death penalty. The film is a portrait of a man at the nexus of the most pressing social issues of our day- racial bias, veteran’s rights, mental health care and criminal justice.

Created from over 32,000 hand-drawn images, the film has garnered international film attention and won numerous awards since its premiere at Full Frame Film Festival in April 2015 where it won Best Short Documentary. Last Day of Freedom recently won the IDA Award for Best Short Documentary.
