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.
