Last Minutes with ODEN

This past Sat­ur­day, Vimeo held its first annu­al awards cer­e­mo­ny in New York City. Films by nine final­ists were screened (see the list below) and then came the big moment: the announce­ment of the Best Video Award, which went to Eliot Rausch, direc­tor of “Last Min­utes with ODEN.” As an orga­niz­er of the Vimeo fes­ti­val explains, the doc­u­men­tary (watch above) is about “redemp­tion and trans­for­ma­tion.” It’s about how Jason Wood, an ex-con­vict and drug addict, grows per­son­al­ly, even spir­i­tu­al­ly, through his rela­tion­ship with Oden, a three-legged dog now strick­en with can­cer. The doc­u­men­tary takes us poignant­ly through their last day togeth­er.
