Watch “Colette,” the Oscar-Winning Short Documentary (2021)




Thanks to The Guardian, you can now watch online “Colette,” the film that recently won the Academy Award in the category of best documentary short. The British newspaper sets the stage as follows:

90-year-old Colette Marin-Catherine confronts her past by visiting the German concentration camp Mittelbau-Dora where her brother was killed. As a young girl, she fought Hitler’s Nazis as a member of the French Resistance. For 74 years, she has refused to step foot in Germany, but that changes when a young history student named Lucie enters her life. Prepared to re-open old wounds and revisit the terrors of that time, Marin-Catherine offers important lessons for us all.

In a separate interview, filmmakers Anthony Giacchino and Alice Doyard “explain how they found out about the story of Colette and why they decided to make a documentary about her.”

“Colette” will be added to our list of online documentaries, a subset of our collection, 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Noir, Westerns, Documentaries & More.
